For Fairtrade Weekend 2015, we’re asking you to turn the spotlight on the producers who grow the food and clothes we love and share their stories. That way, we can remind people of the dramatic difference Fairtrade makes and how much it is needed. We have all the tools to help you make this happen – including ideas, tips, resources, plus an animation film. Whether you’re an individual or part of a Fairtrade Group, there will be other opportunities to take action – including asking businesses directly to switch to Fairtrade. By working together, we can show all those shoppers who either don’t know or don’t believe that Fairtrade makes a difference that when they choose products with the Fairtrade Mark it really does change lives.
