To launch Fairtrade fortnight in school we welcomed Reverend Wright and Sarah from Morrisons in Horsforth to talk to us about the importance of buying Fairtrade products.
Froebelian School will be taking part in the Fairtrade Fortnight 27 February – 10 March 2017.
What does the FAIRTRADE Mark mean?
When you buy products with the FAIRTRADE Mark, you support farmers and workers as they work to improve their lives and their communities.
The Mark means that the Fairtrade ingredients in the product have been produced by small-scale farmer organisations or plantations that meet Fairtrade social, economic and environmental standards. The standards include protection of workers’ rights and the environment, payment of the Fairtrade Minimum Price and an additional Fairtrade Premium to invest in business or community projects.
Fairtrade works to benefit small-scale farmers and workers, who are amongst the most marginalised groups globally, through trade rather than aid to enable them to maintain their livelihoods and reach their potential.
The whole school community was involved including all pupils aged 3-11 years
