The Cash collection in St Marys Tetbury on Sunday 20th February will be in aid of Fairtrade.
Fairtrade Fortnight is 21st February to 6th March.
Fairtrade is a system of certification that aims to ensure a set of standards are met in the production and supply of a product or ingredient. For farmers and workers, Fairtrade means workers’ rights, safer working conditions and fairer pay. For shoppers it means high quality, ethically produced products.
Choosing Fairtrade means standing with farmers for fairness and equality, against some of the biggest challenges the world faces. It means farmers creating change, from investing in climate friendly farming techniques to developing women in leadership.
With Fairtrade you change the world a little bit every day. Through simple shopping choices you are showing businesses and governments that you believe in fair and just trade.
The Traidcraft stall will be open in St Marys’ Tetbury on Sunday 20th to coincide with this.
