Wed, 2017-02-15 13:55

Good teachers, you can tell, have a blast when they teach! And when they have fun, students have fun, and learning becomes fun.

Patara is a fairtrade, sustainably-produced shoe line made by a small factory in Thailand. It’s also the brainchild of Desautels Faculty of Management student Kilian Rosier, who got the idea while travelling in Asia — and who wanted a pair of shoes he could wear everywhere, from the beach to the café. From there, it was just a small jump to the concept of a fairtrade travel shoe with the green production methods possible.

His company, Acadian Seaplants Limited, is the world’s biggest producer of seaweed-based fertilizers and products for human and animal consumption. The company manufactures in five locations, including New Brunswick, Maine and Ireland; and exports to over 80 countries. One of those countries is Japan, where Deveau’s products are ubiquitous.
