Fairtrade Fortnight 27th February – 12th March – how can you do your bit?

Hull is proud to be a Fairtrade City, and Fairtrade Fortnight is almost here – how can you get involved and show your support for Fairtade?

Fairtrade fortnight is a chance for you or your organisation to show that Hull supports Fairtrade. You can do this by doing something as simple as making sure your tea and coffee etc is Fairtrade even just for the fortnight, or by giving your meetings, team meetings, events, lunch clubs etc a Fairtrade theme. If you need ideas, have a look on the Fairtrade Foundation website via the link below.

We are also compiling an emailing list of Fairtrade ‘supporters’ so if you would like to be included, to receive occasional updates and news, or if you have any queries please get in touch.
