Congratulations to all those Fairtraders in Aberdeen on their initiative to get a Fairtrade Shop in the city. A shop window for a fairer world. Well done. Its also worth reiterating that Fairtrade is not about giving to a charity. Its just a committment to pay a FAIR PRICE for goods. That fair price allows for so much more to happen. You don’t have to ‘give’ anything…that should be for us to donate to charities like Oxfam, Wateraid. MSF etc… this is just about what we would expect to pay – but you know that it is buying from a supply chain that pays fairly.
Fairtrade shops help give you a chance to try. Then whenever and wherever you want to shop – you know to get one with a Fairtrade logo if you can. Try the produce at this new Fairtrade shop… but always ask at your regular shop or supermarket for their Fairtade approved product when you shop there.
