Wimborne Minster – A Fair Trade Town
Fairtrade puts more power into the hands of such producers and demonstrates that there are alternatives to large-scale trade, alternatives that work for the producers and for us as consumers.
The Fairtrade Foundation certifies products as fairly traded and awards the Fairtrade Mark.
Representatives of local businesses, schools and the Town Council, working with fairtrade volunteers, helped Wimborne achieve Fairtrade Town status in 2006. Since then the number of shops, cafes, restaurants and residential accommodation offering fairly traded goods has more than trebled.
For more information on the work of the Wimborne Fairtrade Group, please contact its convenor, Robert Pearce, on 01202 886651.
Why Choose Fairtrade?
By changing to fairtrade certified products we can make a real difference to the lives of workers and farmers in developing countries.
Fairtrade is good for Wimborne
Fairtrade is good for everyone!
Wimborne BID wholeheartedly supports the ethos of the Fairtrade Foundation and will strongly encourage Wimborne businesses to sell fairtrade products to help the developing world.
