Ethical Trade Fortnight
Celebrating Fairtrade and Other Ethical Trade Brands
Fairtrade fortnight will be happening Monday 24 February - Sunday 8 March 2020. Here at SUBU we celebrate Ethical Trade Fortnight during the same 2 weeks.
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.
At Bournemouth University, we recognise the importance of Fairtrade items and we stock various items which are Fairtrade.
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.
