Fairtrade Fortnight

What is Fairtrade fortnight?

Fairtrade fortnight is an annual celebration of all things Fairtrade. It’s an opportunity to raise awareness of Fairtrade and the reasons why you should consider shopping Fairtrade.

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers.

It’s about supporting the development of thriving farming and worker communities that have more control over their futures and protecting the environment in which they live and work.

How can you get involved?

The easiest way to take part in Fairtrade fortnight is to shop for Fairtrade products.  You’ll be surprised how many easyfundraising retailers sell Fairtrade products.

Sainsbury’s offer a wide range of Fairtrade products including bananas, coffee and sugar helping you buy great products with a clear conscience. You can raise up to 4% in donations too.

The Ethical Superstore has 20% off 357 Fairtrade labelled products and new customers get 5% in donations.

Retailer Fashion-Conscience have a range of Fairtrade and ethical clothing, including clothing, jewellry and accessories. Feel even better about shopping with 4% donations for your good cause.
