Fairtraide fortnight is a chance to get involved and shout about all things Fairtrade!!!
Its about improving trade for farmers in developing countries by ensuring they get better prices and better working conditions. It helps to improve their lives and prevent discrimination against poorer producers.
Boostingawareness of this will help to get the Fairtrade Message heard. ‘2012’s theme is ‘Take a Step’ by simply swapping your usual groceries for a Fairtrade brand. (I swapped my usual supermarket roses for some fairtrade ones yesterday).
