World Fair Trade Day 2017

World Fair Trade Day is on again this Saturday, the 13th of May. 

The theme this year is Agents of Change – showing how anyone, producers, those in the supply chain, policy makers, advocates and consumers can support fair trade and sustainable development. 

And while fair trade has seen its global influence and local successes grow over the last decade, there is still a long way to go in ending the social disadvantages faced by producers and communities in developing countries due to their marginalization and exploitation in the world marketplace.

Our Fair Trade WA Oxfam shop in Bayswater will be open this Saturday and is celebrating World Fair Trade Day, with a forecourt market and sausage sizzle.

Come and see the range of fair trade chocolates, coffee and tea, condiments, handicrafts, jewellery, children’s toys and a lot more, learning about the stories behind the products and supporting the people and communities that produced them.
