Fairtrade Fortnight is almost upon us. Tomorrow sees the start of two weeks of promotion around the benefits of fair trade. We'll be doing everything we can to help spread the word and get people thinking about how they spend their hard earned cash.
The Fairtrade logo we're all familiar with is applied mostly to commodities - things like coffee, cocoa, sugar and tea, and of course bananas! While we don't sell may of those things, we believe we can still play a big role in promoting fair trade by telling the stories of the talented and creative people who produce the beautiful items we sell.
We have some great new products which have arrived just in time for Fairtrade Fortnight and will be online very soon - including beautiful scarves, a great new range of bags and some fantastic cushions and picture frames.
However you celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight, have fun and go bananas!
