Celebrating Fairtrade and Other Ethical Trade Brands
We encourage students to think about purchasing ethical trade brands, to support workers overseas so that they can produce and sell their products in a fair way, to ensure they have a decent wage and standard of living, and to ensure that products are resourced in a careful and sustainable way, so that our environment does not become damaged or polluted.
You can find out more about ethical trade brands below - simply click on the icons.
In March 2019 we had a
Tea Tasting Event
, to celebrate Ethical Trade and sustainably grown tea.
At Bournemouth University, we recognise the importance of Fairtrade items and we stock various items which are Fairtrade. Make sure to check out our display in the student shop.
What is Fairtrade?
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices which must never fall lower than the market price, Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.
