Fairtrade Fortnight 2018: COME ON IN
Fairtrade Fortnight 2018 challenges the British public to open their doors to Fairtrade and help close the door on the exploitation facing the people who produce the things we love to eat, drink, and wear.
to the world of the people who grow our food to see what life can be like when farmers and workers aren’t paid fairly. More people choosing, sharing and shouting about Fairtrade in the UK during Fairtrade Fortnight will open doors for more producers to break the stranglehold of poverty prices.
Look out for decorated doors and windows around the town highlighting the growers and producers of Fairtrade goods.
