Did you know…Fairtrade Fortnight this year runs from 29 February – 13 March? CAFOD is co-founder of the Fairtrade Foundation. As Martin Luther King famously said, ‘before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half the world’. Fairtrade is a simple way to make a difference by thinking carefully about our everyday choices. It’s about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for small-scale farmers. We are all part of the global food system – which means we have the power to change it. Choosing Fairtrade products is one of the ways we can help tackle poverty.
We provide a weekly ‘CAFOD fact’ as a short ‘Did You Know?’ to parishes across the Lancaster Diocese, which they print in their parish newsletters. If you would be interested in receiving this weekly email, let us know at CAFOD Lancaster and we’ll send it directly to you too – email: firstname.lastname@example.org
