Fairtrade stall

Posted on

FairtradeLogoBigThere will be a Fairtrade stall in the college reception, giving students a chance to support this cause by purchasing bamboo socks, snacks –  some savoury, but mostly sweet such as chocolate bars, biscuits, muesli bars and bags of sweets, and ground coffee and teabags

The proceeds will pay for the goods and the small profit margin goes to Traidcraft’s Social Welfare charity, Traidcraft Exchange, which assists small producers in the developing world to improve their production methods so they can compete in the world market and receive a fair wage.  The Fairtrade premium which they receive enables them to house their families, educate their children and afford healthcare.
