Isle of Man’s Fairtrade status renewed

With World Fairtrade Day being marked last Saturday, we finally found time to announce that the Isle of Man has had its Fairtrade status renewed until July 2026 by the Fairtrade Foundation.

We are also pleased to announce that the Island’s Fairtrade Group has also been awarded all five of the new community badges that have been made available. These include badges for campaigning, change-making and being Fairtrade ambassadors.

The Fairtrade Foundation has introduced these to acknowledge that “every action taken on a local level adds to raising awareness of the issues of unfair trade and furthers the progress of workers’ rights, safer working conditions and fairer pay for farmers and workers globally”.

Although small in numbers, the Isle of Man Fairtrade Group works hard with local stockists to promote Fairtrade and carries out awareness raising activities with schools, churches, workplaces and the general public.

Pictured are some of the Isle of Man Fairtrade Group with the new certificate and also some of the children from St Mary’s Primary School Eco-Club who regularly hold a Fairtrade tuck shop.
