Fair Trade Town - Yippee
It's official - Stockton-on-Tees is a Fair Trade Town. We got the news late yesterday afternoon so well done all of you who buy and use Fair Trade goods whether from the supermarket, the corner shop, the cafe, the church or all the other outlets. Now the steering group will plan the celebration event and draw up an action plan for the next 12 months. We need to embed and extend the use of Fair Trade goods as much as possible, encouraging people who've still never heard of the idea to try them out.
In Eaglescliffe we're lucky to have a super vegetarian restaurant which uses many fairtrade foods in its cooking without making a great fuss about it, so many people will be eating and drinking them without realising. Next time you're in look for the Fairtrade certificate proudly on display.
