Fairtrade

Fairtrade makes things fairer for farmers. Without it, not as many people would be able to feed their families in developing countries. And they would probably not be able to survive.

What are developing countries?

Developing countries are where many people don’t have easy access to food like we do, and struggle to make a living. There are, of course, rich people who live in developing countries. But this is very rare.

What is Fairtrade?

Fairtrade is a charity which allows the farmers to get paid fair wages.

How do I buy Fairtrade items?

You can get Fairtrade bananas, pears, pineapples, tomatoes and clothes… To name a few. Remember: Items that are Fairtrade will have this logo on it:

The Fairtrade logo.
This is the Fairtrade logo.
