Fair Trade Challenge 2015
Registrations are now closed.
The core challenge will remain the same: consume Fair Trade tea, coffee, and chocolate for 30 days. However, along with the new timing and name, we will offer our participants the opportunity to find the right “challenge” for each individual or group. This year Fair Trade Manitoba will be featuring different types of alternative challenges: the School Challenge, the Bakers’ Challenge, the Office Challenge, and the Holiday Challenge. If you can’t find the right Challenge, you can always create your own!
When you buy fair trade, it means that producers in the developing world have received a fair wage for what they produce, so they are able to better support their families and communities. This alternative approach to trade encourages more sustainable farm management practices, better conditions for workers, and more democratic procedures within the workplace. Fair trade also means no child labour has been used in production.
