The foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature.
Yet, these are exceptional times in which nature is sending us a message:
To care for ourselves we must care for nature.
It’s time to wake up. To take notice. To raise our voices.
It’s time to build back better for People and Planet.
This World Environment Day, it’s Time for Nature.
In the face of the global Coronavirus crisis, farmers and workers are playing a vital – but too often forgotten – role.
So this World Fair Trade Day, we’re celebrating their hard work. Join us in sending a big thank you to those keeping food on our plates.
Fairtrade farmers and workers are keeping shelves stocked around the world, but even more importantly they’re working to keep their own communities safe.
How fairtrade producers are helping – https://stories.fairtrade.org.uk/the-key-workers-beyond-our-borders/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=engagingnetworks&utm_campaign=++&utm_content=SC:WFTD+H+Ts
From preparing emergency food parcels to producing PPE, Fairtrade producers are helping some of the most vulnerable communities in the world get through this crisis.
Share their stories this World Fair Trade Day to thank them for their amazing efforts. Let’s make sure everyone appreciates these key workers beyond our borders.
