In 2005 Falmouth Town Council embraced the fairtrade ethos by forming a partnership with local organisations and individuals to make Falmouth the first fairtrade town in Cornwall.
What is Fairtrade?
Fair Trade is an alternative approach to conventional international trade. It is a trading partnership which aims at sustainable development for excluded and disadvantaged producers. It seeks to do this by providing better trading conditions, by awareness raising and by campaigning.
positive impact on global poverty.
Three Steps for you to Support Fairtrade:
- Buy it: whether its wine, chocolate, coffee, fruit, clothes etc look out for the fairtrade mark
- Talk about it: tell your friends and family to make sure they buy fairtrade goods too.
- Ask for it: if your usual shop does not stock fairtrade goods yet, then ask for them.
Falmouth Fairtrade retailers and suppliers
Falmouth already has many outlets for Fairtrade goods from large stores to small local shops (some aim to use only fairtrade goods, others only have one or two items, your custom will help more fairtrade goods to be introduced).
In order to compile an accurate list, we would appreciate your input. For more information, please contact Pat Fitzpatrick email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Councillors Mrs Brock, B Ross and G Chappel represent the Fairtrade Working Party.
