Yorkshire branded Fairtrade logos

You may have noticed that the Fairtrade Yorkshire logo looks slightly different from other Fairtrade places logos. We have added a white Yorkshire rose to the image.

We have produced a range of Fairtrade places logos for the 38 Fairtrade places in Yorkshire to use if they wish to which also incorporate the white rose.

Fair Trade Detectives

How many times have you visited a town or village and looked in vain for a cafe where you can get a Fairtrade cup of coffee or a shop selling delicious Fairtrade chocolate to satisfy your cravings? Perhaps you’re going Christmas shopping in a Yorkshire city and want to know where you can buy fair trade gifts for your loved ones. Well – at Fairtrade Yorkshire we’re here to help.

Our brand new web resource turns you into a fair trade detective – and helps you find fair trade goods wherever you are in the region.

Whenever you find fair trade goods in Yorkshire, upload the details to the website (it won’t be instant – just in case people take advantage!) and help others find the Fairtrade and fair trade goods we love.

The criteria are: it can be a shop, cafe or a regular stall for example in a church. They must be selling goods with the Fairtrade mark, or sourced from members of WFTO or BAFTS (UK Fair Trade Network).

Look for these marks.

Fairtrade Yorkshire Conference – Ilkley 26 October

Our special mini-Conference aimed at Places of Worship was a great success.

Around 40 people gathered in Christchurch, Ilkley for an afternoon of networking, brainstorming and celebrating Fairtrade’s 25th year. Deputy Mayor of Ilkley, Ros Brown was there cutting our amazing cake.

 

 

 

We were delighted that Tim Aldred, Head of Policy at the Fairtarde Foundation was able to join us and he explained how Fairtrade fits into his own faith and the life of faith communities around the world.

 

 

 

We shared ideas for making a splash in Fairtrade Fortnight 2020 and thought about how we can incorporate fair trade into our own communities and parishes. You can read a summary of ideas here. Summary of ideas to promote Fairtrade

 

 

 

We are grateful to the Ethical Jeweller, Shared Interest and Co-operative Wealth who all brought stalls.
