Supporting Fairtrade

“Telford and Wrekin Council is a Co-operative Council fully committed to support- ing Fairtrade,” explained a spokeswoman. “We want to work with

local people, partners, busi- nesses, the young and old to do more throughout the year. Find out how during Fairtrade Fortnight, 27 Feb- ruary 2012 - 11 March 2012.” The theme for Fairtrade

Fortnight is ‘Take a Step in 2012’ and TWC will be ensuring everyone knows


what they can do to ‘take a step’ towards supporting Fairtrade.

Many of the products we depend on daily, tea, cof- fee, fruit and cotton come from farmers and workers in the developing world, yet growers find it hard to cover living costs due to tariffs and inequalities in the in- ternational trading system. By supporting Fairtrade we can help make a difference to their lives. A number of activities will take place in

schools and other venues, offering different ways to get involved. You can ‘take a step in 2012’ by buying Fairtrade products. You can buy these from local shops, restau- rants, by mail or online. The Council

is ‘taking

a step’ by inviting people, schools, businesses, and organisations, to an event at the Civic Offices, to ex- plore how we can work to promote Fairtrade in the borough.

Find out more at www. There will be a Fairtrade exhibition in Telford Shop- ping Centre on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 March, in Pri- mark Square. There will be stalls promoting Fairtrade products. Shoppers can buy Fairtrade goods, people will be available to answer ques- tions.


The council wants your on

Fairtrade. You

could win a Fairtrade ham- per.
