Supporting Farmers with Fairtrade Fortnight 2018
Fairtrade Fortnight aims to cast a spotlight on trade, by supporting the farmers and factory workers in the industry. It’s all about being aware of where our products come from and supporting those who produce them.
This year, Fairtrade Fortnight will run from the 26th February to 11th March. Across the UK, people will be raising awareness and supporting fair, ethical trade.
Here’s a bit more about Fairtrade Fortnight 2018 and why we at NOUR Luxury are so passionate about standing behind those who produce the things we love.
Why is Fairtrade Fortnight Important?
Fairtrade Fortnight makes people aware of the lives of the farmers in the trade industry.
But, many people are still unaware of the significance of buying Fairtrade:
Fairtrade Certified Products
A Fairtrade certification guarantees that your product has been ethically sourced, by ensuring fair working conditions and better wages for farmers.
Buying Fairtrade certified products is essential in preventing the persecution of those in disadvantaged parts of the world. Workers are protected by good working conditions, such as no child labour or harmful pesticides.
A Fairtrade certification also means that farmers can make their own decisions and live without being marginalised.
Through their shopping choices, consumers can support farmers, receiving a better product sourced in an ethical way.
Raising Awareness with Fairtrade Fortnight
So, with the Fairtrade Fortnight campaign, consumers can make an active difference.
Many consumers are still unaware of the importance of buying ethically sourced products, and the Fairtrade Fortnight campaign helps highlight the benefits for farmers and workers.

Spread the Fairtrade message by following the Fairtrade Foundation across all social media platforms. Give them a like on Facebook, a follow on Twitter and a follow on Instagram to stay updated with the campaign.
