Fairtrade fortnight 2010 runs from February 22nd to March 7th.
A great reminder that we can help those who grow and provide food for us in the developing world by ensuring that they receive a fair living wage!
We can do that by swapping as many food and household items as possible for fairtrade alternatives ( fruit, coffee, tea, chocolate, wine, sugar, rice, flowers, cotton etc) . Sure, they tend to be a little more expensive - but the extra money we pay means the producer has earned a better and fairer income.
After all, we all want to be able to provide for our families.
