Fair Trade Fortnight 4 – 19 May
How Will You Celebrate Fair Trade Fortnight?
When you purchase goods carrying the Fair Trade logo you know that the product has been produced without the use of child labour or exploitative practices. When purchasing everyday products such as chocolate, coffee, tea, and cotton opt for the Fair Trade products. This will ensure that the world’s poorest farmers get a decent price for their products.
The Fair Trade Australia and New Zealand website reports that over the past five years the annual growth rate in Fair Trade purchases has been 50%. By this small action you can make a big difference to eliminating exploitation of farmers and children.
