Having achieved the Fairtrade Status in November 2011, Luton Council of Faiths with its leading partner organisation Grassroots (a Christian ecumenical organisation working with different faith communities in Luton) continues towards its engagement and campaign for Fair Trade in Luton. Members from different faiths and non-faiths which formed a steering group still meet regularly and to make strategic decisions to encourage Lutonians to think globally and act locally.
The ongoing work since the town was Launched Fairtrade by Harriet Lamb (ex-CEO of Fairtrade Foundation) has led luton to the Outstanding Achievement Award which was celebrated at the Fairtrade Supporters Conference this October 2012.
What is Fairtrade?
Fair Trade is an alternative approach to conventional international trade. It is a trading partnership which aims at sustainable development for excluded and disadvantaged producers. It seeks to do this by providing better trading conditions, by awareness raising and by campaigning.
The FAIRTRADE Mark on products guarantees that disadvantaged farmers and workers in the developing world are getting a better deal.
