This week is the second week of “Fairtrade Fortnight.” It’s a shocking fact that millions of farmers and workers who produce the food we love still don’t earn enough to feed their own families. It’s time for this injustice to end. Fairtrade Fortnight puts a spotlight on trade. When trade is fair it has the potential to improve the lives of the people who grow our food.
Tanya Dorrity the Community Officer from The Channel Islands Co-operative Society Limited ran a school assembly to explain what Fairtrade means. As a treat she also brought every member of school a fairtrade banana. They were fabulous!
