How to Vote With Your Wallet and Buy Fairtrade

Kira Simpson

I’m a firm believer in voting with your wallet – when you buy the things that support your values, you’re creating space for change.

If more people support Fairtrade products – things like chocolate, coffee, tea, cotton –  then whole communities benefit. It’s your small purchasing decisions that can make a big difference

Fairtrade Fortnight Australia New Zealand 2021

This Fairtrade Fortnight I challenge you during your next grocery shop to find at least one thing you normally buy – ice cream, chocolate, coffee – and swap it with something with the Fairtrade Mark.

“Fairtrade Fortnight is an annual celebration of people, including farmers and families, who are working to make the world fairer. It’s a great time to reflect on the power of our choices to create a better future for the planet and its people.”
