Fair Intents at Bronte Parsonage Meadow

September 11, 2010 at 12pm to September 12, 2010 at 4pm
Not entirely a Fairtrade event but Haworth Fairtrade Group have always thought an Ecofair would benefit the local community, Fair Intents is on September 11 and 12 in the Bronte Parsonage Meadow and a Fairtrade Cafe in the Bronte Schoolrooms. We don't expect most of you on this forum to attend (not very eco!) but you can follow our progress on www.fairintents.org.uk

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

looking forward to working with all of you to make a better world to everyone! :D
