CHOOSE FAIRTRADE EVERY DAY!
We’re thinking about farmers and workers who urgently need to earn more to have the power to adapt to the climate crisis they face every day.
Every single time you choose Fairtrade, or decided to campaign with us, you’re choosing to put more power and more money in the hands of those farmers and workers who are sorely disadvantaged by unfair global trade. Your support leads to more clinics delivering life-saving care, more businesses growing sustainably and more children getting a quality education, thanks to farmers democratically choosing how to invest their Fairtrade Premium locally.
In fact, despite the huge difficulties caused by the current pandemic, our global Fairtrade movement continues to make countless positive changes in communities all around the world.
Whatever you do in 2021, thank you for being part of that!
Thank you to Guernsey Fire & Rescue Service for bringing out its shiny new fire engine on a drizzly Sunday morning to put up our banner. Great job! #FairtradeFortnight starts tomorrow!
