Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world - if that sounds like something you want your organisation to be associated with it can be a simple step, like swapping your tea to Fairtrade, or a bigger step, like asking everyone in your office to do it too. You'll be joining thousands of others all over the UK when you take a step for Fairtrade. Make it as inventive, daring, funny or messy as you like. Every step counts for millions of farmers, workers and their communities in developing countries who urgently need a better deal from trade.
The Fairtrade Foundation has launched details of its "Take a Step in 2012" campaign. This will be launched as part of Fairtrade Fortnight starting on 27th February and lasting until 12th March 2012. The fortnight is not only designed to encourage organisations to raise awareness of Fairtrade products and causes that they could support but is launching the "Take a Step in 2012" campaign encouraging organisations and individuals to identify how they can support the foundations work in 2012. Have a look at what was achieved earlier this year and be inspired, and see how you can contribute in 2012.
