It’s that time of year again, its FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT! There are sooo many ways you can get involved.
The Fair Trade Association of Australia and New Zealand (FTAANZ) are asking New Zealanders to make The Big Swap. They want as to get as many people as possible involved to swap their usual stuff – coffee, tea, bananas, chocolate – even tee shirts – to Fairtrade stuff.
If you want to know more about The Big Swap More or other ways to get involved go to the FTAANZ website www.fairtrade.org.nz/thebigswap
This year Trade Aid is highlighting the positive impact fair trade has on women working in developing countries with the theme for the fortnight being “’Just Women - justice for women by women”.
Mother’s Day falls during the Fortnight too, so it is a great time for Kiwi’s to show their support for women around the world, and those closer to home, by buying Trade Aid’s gifts.
