Great to receive gifts at Christmas from friends in Germany and to see that they choose Fairtrade too!
Fairtrade Guernsey once again serving Fairtrade Mulled Wine at the St Martin’s Parish Christmas Fayre.
The Guernsey Chamber of Commerce has just signed up to the island’s Fair Trade initiative and is proudly offering a range of Fairtrade drinks and snacks which help this hugely important organisation.
A Fairtrade awareness lunch and discussion was held at the end of November and the organisation has committed to supporting Fairtrade for the foreseeable future. www.guernseychamber.com/-/choose-the-world-you-want/
……and more in store. Check it out!
Here is the Fairtrade Foundation’s pick of 14 ethical Fairtrade coffees, tried and tested and chosen for their people-friendly and eco-friendly credentials.
These coffees are ethical in a number of ways, but even being Fairtrade is enough for them to rightly claim ethical status. Being part of the Fairtrade system means that farmers are better protected against low and unpredictable incomes, it means they are paid a fair price and it means improved knowledge of sustainable farming practices, all of which make them better able to protect the local environment and address the challenges of the climate crisis.
When you choose Fairtrade, you are helping to protect people and planet. Start your day with one of these coffees and you’ll be starting the day right. Now, some may only be available in the UK, but that’s no excuse, shops in the Bailiwick have more than enough Fairtrade choice! ENJOY!
Fairtrade Guernsey very pleased to have a full page devoted to the work. “Fairtrade – an easy starting point.”
