Fair Trade

Fairtrade is a movement to help producers in developing countries gain fair access to the world market, avoid exploitation, child labour and environmental damage. In order to help consumers identify fairly traded goods, a  number of ‘Fair Trade Marks’ were developed. When you see a Fair Trade logo, you know that the people who made the products have been paid fairly for their work.  This could include any of the following:

 

Fairtrade in Waterford: Waterford celebrated its 10 year anniversary of being a Fairtrade City in 2015.  The WOWC palyed a large role in that process and continues to work to keep awareness of Fairtrade high in Waterford.  This work is supported by Irish Aid and Fairtrade Ireland.

Fairtrade in Schools:  The WOWC supports schools who wish to become Fairtrade Schools or those that just want to include Fair Trade as part of their action projects or general learning.  If your school would like a Fair Trade workshop or more information, contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
