NEWS: Fairtrade Football

Global_fwCross-posted from Hippyshopper and updated.

As most of you already know this year between the 6th and 19th of March 2006 we get to enjoy Fairtrade Fortnight: the biggest push towards ethical consumerism all year long. With over 1300 fairtrade products available in shops making an ethical shopping decision has never been easier. Plus Fairtrade Fortnight makes bringing fairtrade up in conversation a doddle. You can even thank, as I did last year, those who run your local shop for listening to you and stocking Fairtrade products. Of course you can then encourage them to do even more. I had some very interesting chats with supermarket staff. With hundreds of events up and down the country you can meet fellow CityHippy types and even get to talk to people that grow Fairtrade produce. My Fairtrade pick of the fortnight? A Global All Star Football available from Fair Deal Trading for only £12.90
