Lacock FairTrade

 

We are proud to announce that St Cyriac’s & St. Anne’s have recently achieved official Fairtrade Church certification! They join a growing community of places of worship that are key supporters in the fight for fairer terms of trade. As part of the Fairtrade movement we are supporting small-scale farmers and workers who are marginalised from trade in a variety of ways.

A Bit About Fairtrade.  Fairtrade is a certification that aims to ensure a set of standards are met in the production and supply of a product or ingredient. For farmers and workers, Fairtrade means safer working conditions and fairer pay. For shoppers it means high quality and ethically produced products.

Choosing Fairtrade means standing with farmers for fairness and equality, against some of the biggest challenges the world faces today. It means farmers creating change, from investing in climate friendly farming techniques, to developing women in leadership.
