Fairtrade Foundation - Take a Step

This Fairtrade Fortnight Take A Step.
Millions of people in developing countries depend on farming. But they are trapped in poverty by the rules of world trade, keeping those at the start of supply chains powerless to earn enough to cover their costs and with nothing to save for their families.

Choosing Fairtrade offers farmers and workers a better chance to work their way out of poverty, through fairer wages, safer conditions at work and a little extra, called the Fairtrade premium, to invest in projects to improve life for their whole communities.

Your step for Fairtrade can be as simple as trying a new Fairtrade product, or as big and bold as launching  a campaign to get your whole town to go Fairtrade. Every single one counts, because together they lead to life-changing projects in developing countries.

For your first step just click on the video above and see what taking a step means.
