College Class Takes Trip to Maggie's Production Facility

Students from Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, have recently made a trip to the production facility in Costa Rica that makes much of Maggie's Organics' apparel. After Maggie's president Bena Burda gave a talk to the class earlier this year, they packed their bags and headed south to the family-owned and -operated sewing facility.

Aquinas College
is home to the first undergraduate program in Sustainable Business in the entire US, and so the students continued their education by visiting the birthplace of some great organic, fair-trade apparel.

Seen above is the class with professor Deborah Steketee.
