It's Fairtrade Fortnight! 25 February - 10 March 2013

Monday, 25 February 2013

 
Fairtrade Fortnight is an annual event run by the The Fairtrade Foundation to promote the importance of buying fairtrade produce and highlight the benefits of trading ethically and sustainably.  It began here in the UK back in 1997 and has since spread to several countries across the world who now all participate in spreading the word on a global level. 

Buying Fairtrade products means that you are are helping to provide better working conditions for the producers (many of which operate on a small scale and are family / co-op run in some of the world's most impoverished areas), local sustainability, fair prices and terms of trade for the farmers involved.  Many Fairtrade projects also have higher levels of commitment to conserving the environment and work with national conservation organisations which has a positive impact on wildlife and improving levels of biodiversity.

We Were Raised By Wolves is proud to be taking part in Fairtrade Fortnight and will be running a series of dedicated features, so keep an eye out for those!

For more information on how you can get involved, what you can do to help and details of Fairtrade Fortnight events taking place near you, please visit Fairtrade.org.uk
