Why Fairtrade matters to Macclesfield
We would like to see our home town acknowledge its place within the global community and interact with that community in a fair and responsible way, free from the exploitation of others, wherever they live.
But don’t just take our word for it, have a look what the Fairtrade Foundation has to say about the benefits of buying Fairtrade.
What is a Fairtrade Town?
A Fairtrade Town is one that:
- Supports Fairtrade and helps to raise awareness and understanding of the benefits Fairtrade brings.
- Takes action by choosing Fairtrade products whenever possible and encourages other people and places to do so as well.
- Achieves and continues to take action on the five Fairtrade Town goals set by the Fairtrade Foundation.
