FAIR TRADE FORTNIGHT


If you're in the UK, don't forget it's Fair Trade Fortnight coming up. There will be lots of info in the media about buying Fair Trade, and a Fair Trade Fairground in London this Sunday. To find out more about Fair Trade and how it benefits people, click here. If you run a craft business and are interested in finding a Fair Trade producer to make things for you, check out my article in issue 3 of mixtapezine for some suggestions. And here is a picture of my new Peapod Rattle - sample finally finished and it is on the way to the amazing Fair Trade knitters I work with in Bangladesh, who will knit up a whole batch of them.

Love that there is a fair trade fair. I recently did a post on where you could shop sweatshop free, but didn't think to add fair trade into the equation. Will do some research for my part of the world.
