Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It ensures better prices, decent working conditions and sustainability for farmers and workers in the developing world.
Educate your community on how our purchasing choices affect those living in poverty all around the world by running a Fairtrade morning tea.
1. Get together with a group of friends and organise a date, time and location for the morning tea. Promote the event at your school and to your friends. You could use posters, flyers, or a facebook event.
3. Buy fairtrade tea and coffee to serve. You could even get together as a group to make some brownies, muffins or other treats made with Fairtrade chocolate/products. Fairtrade products are easy to find at most supermarkets! Just look for this logo on the label:
4. Run the morning tea and have fun! Remember to tell everyone at the morning tea about Fairtrade and what it means for farmers, workers and communities living in poverty. You can find out more at this link.
