It’s time to celebrate all things Fairtrade with the launch of Fairtrade Fortnight. This year the focus is on making sure that cocoa farmers, particularly women cocoa farmers, earn a living income and there are lots of supporting materials on www.fairtrade.org.uk. Schools and churches around the Island are getting involved (listen out for Manor Park students on Manx Radio’s Thought for the Day this week!) and there also other activities happening that you can read about on the Fairtrade Isle of Man Facebook page here. Maybe you could organise a Fairtrade bake-off or coffee morning with friends, or encourage your workplace to take part? We’re now in our 11th year of being a Fairtrade Island – choosing Fairtrade is such as easy way to make a difference so break out your favourite bar of Fairtrade chocolate or make a cup of Fairtrade coffee, and let’s take Fairtrade forward!
