Schools can apply for fair-trade status (there are now over 800 Fairtrade Schools in the UK). This is something a church is well placed to support – not least because many churches feel strongly about social justice and the importance of fair trade. In order to become a fair trade school, the school needs to set up a fair trade group, write a fair trade policy, use and promote  fair trade products, learn about fair trade and run fair trade events throughout the year. The Fairtrade Foundation website  has a lot of helpful information.

 

How could you start this yourself?
