TODAY IS WORLD FAIR TRADE DAY!
Every day, tens of thousands of men, women and children in various Asian, African and South American countries work themselves to the bone in almost unbearable conditions for just pennies so we can enjoy everyday things we take for granted. However, there are many people in this world who feel that everyone deserves decent wages and working conditions, regardless of where they live. Fair Trade Day is a global event (created in 2004) that aims to draw attention to the objectives and achievements of the Fair Trade movement. Fair Trade Day is observed in countries across the world by various events in which local producers and artisans mark the contribution that has been made by Fair Trade initiatives.
GIFT SETS MAKE THE PERFECT GIFT!
Today we had a fairtrade stall at an event about fairtrade gold, which was sponsored by the Conwy Fairtrade Coalition and hosted by Gloddeath Church in Llandudno.
