The FIG Tree

I was delighted to attend the opening of the FIG Tree International Fair Trade Visitor Centre in Garstang yesterday 21st November.

Congratulations Bruce, I hope the thousands who pass through the doors will willingly take the message and use it to help end the inequality and unfair trading system.

This, after a weekend at the International Fairtrade Town Conference in Malmo Sweden makes me proud to be part of this incredibly successful social movement.

Hello Rita and thank you for asking.

I'm have some companies in Iceland and one of them is a Not-for-profit that is supposed to finance creating an Fairtrade Organization presence in Iceland. What about you?

Hi Rita, I am a supporter, having just realised the power of my very own consumerism I want to do as much as I possibly can! This site is awesome, very inspiring to see all these people from all over the world with the same kindness and thought for the people in our world. Anika

I was reading an essay about Fair Trade and looked it up, and joined this site. I hope my involvement here can bring a change to the lives of the farmers out there.
looking forward to working with all of you to make a better world to everyone! :D
