Fairtrade Fortnight is Here!
I’ve been busy taking steps as eye2eye, to promote fairtrade products around MK this week. So far I’ve attended an event at Abbey School and a fund-raising event for local charity Global Education MK on Tuesday evening. We had a great meal and heard from Anton Bowman, a banana grower from St Vincent in the Windward Isles. Anton’s community are currently blighted with yellow Sigatoka, a leaf virus. Because of this, they are presently unable to export bananas, which they rely upon as their key cash crop. We wish them well for a speedy return to normal banana production.
Lots of new fairtrade products on the shelves here in the shop: hand glazed kitchenware and homewares from Shared Earth, lovely bags and accessories from Namaste and gardening products, ready for the Spring from New Overseas Traders, in addition to a wide range of delicious fairtrade wholefoods, and kitchen essentials.
Come and take a look when you’re next in the area.
