As part of our continuing campaigning against injustices we have joined over 7400 other places of worship in becoming a fair trade church. We hope with this additional commitment we can continue to promote fairtrade in the future.
In becoming a Fairtrade church we have committed to:
- Use Fairtrade tea and coffee after services and in all other events we run.
- Move forward on using other Fairtrade products such as sugar, biscuits and fruit.
- Promote Fairtrade during Fairtrade Fortnight and during the year through events, worship and other activities whenever possible
Fairtrade is growing with enormous success thanks to the support of consumers and the efforts of organisations like yours raising awareness of Fairtrade.
- There are now over 4500 Fairtrade certified products ranging from coffee to flowers and from cotton to dried fruit.
- Sales of products carrying the Fairtrade Mark in the UK reached an estimated £1.57b in 2012.
- For 7.5 million farmers, workers and their families worldwide, Fairtrade is a lifeline enabling them to survive difficult times and invest in a better future. Producer groups from around the world including Sri Lanka, Egypt, Ghana, Bolivia and many others beside are all benefiting from selling to the UK Fairtrade market.
