Fairtrade is about stable prices, decent working conditions and the empowerment of farmers and workers around the world.
Fairtrade Australia & New Zealand works directly with businesses, consumers and campaigners to make trade fair by securing a better deal for farmers and workers. Fairtrade works with farmers and workers all over the world to address wide ranging issues from labour rights to market volatility and unsafe working conditions.
When you buy a Fairtrade product you are supporting these producers and ensuring they can lead safe and productive lives. The Fairtrade Mark is the globally recognised label that adorns Fairtrade Certified products.
There are lots of ways to get active in your community to raise awareness of Fairtrade and, in turn, support farmers and workers in developing countries.
A great way to raise awareness in your community is to hold an event – whether it be big or small. This could include holding a stall at a market, having a bake sale at your school, or arranging an awareness raising morning tea.
Another great way to support is to get involved in a Fairtrade campaign. To find out more about what’s happening and for ideas about what you can do, visit Fairtrade’s campaign page.
You can keep up to date with Fairtrade’s work via their Facebook page and Youtube channel.
