Online database brings a Fairtrade festive season

For those of you who support fair-trade and the purchasing of fair-trade products, the county council now has a new online database stocked full of information on Fairtrade suppliers in Staddordshire. The site has details of over 250 local shops and organisations across Staffordshire who are committed to helping get a fair deal for producers in the developing world.

I have tried out the database myself today and I must say it is very easy to use and very useful.

I think it is important, especially at this time of year to make sure we think of others less fortunate than ourselves. Buying fair-trade ensure that a fair wage is paid for a fair product whilst not costing us the earth.

To browse the Fairtrade register go to www.staffordshire.gov.uk/fairtrade.
