Traidcraft Fair Trade Shop
has been instrumental in the establishment of the Fair Trade Mark (a registered certification label for products sourced from producers in developing countries). By supporting poor and small-scale producers and challenging unfair trading structures, Traidcraft’s
mission is to help the poor to improve their lives. Traidcraft
operates as both a trading system and a development charity.
SHOP FOR FAIRTRADE PRODUCTS
The Traidcraft Fair Trade Shop
is the place to buy high quality organic products and products bearing the Fairtrade mark. Groceries, wine, clothing, handmade silver jewellery
and more are available to buy, including Fairtrade chocolate
, coffee, candles and even pots for your plants (made in Bangladesh). There is always a paragraph beside each item about the producer, so you can get a real sense of the personalities behind the products.
runs from 27th February until 11th March, raising awareness of the power of trade. There is still time to get involved (and who says you can't organise something after the end of the fortnight?); find out what you can do by visiting Traidcraft
