What is your Fairtrade item?: Maltesers

Why?: I love chocolate and it makes it even better that maltesers are fair trade, giving farmers a fair price for cocoa.

Countdown to a #FairtradeChristmas – Day 21

Who are you?: David Innes, Aberdeen for a Fairer World Trustee.

What is your Fairtrade item?: Cafe Direct Fair Trade Everyday Teabags.

Why?: Enjoying a cup of Cafe Direct Fair Trade tea bought from the Co-op (other stockists are available). Always a welcome and refreshing mid morning pick me up on a busy day.

Described as being a “bright refreshing blend” these teabags are a balanced blend of Fairtrade teas from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.

Countdown to a #FairtradeChristmas – Day 20

Who are you?: Santa. I will be visiting the North East of Scotland and delivering lots of toys to the good boys and girls (and staff) of Bridge of Don Academy. There might be restrictions in place but that won’t stop me dropping presents off, I am a key worker after all!

What is your Faitrade item?: Fairtrade Christmas stocking fillers.

Why?: As you have been hearing throughout December, Fairtrade helps the farmers and producers of products that we love. When I am making up Christmas stockings to thank all my elves, I like to use Fairtrade chocolates and gifts. They have delicious chocolate coins, purses from India, socks, boxes of chocolates, wooden calendars, chocolate coated raisins, jelly beans, chocolate lollipops, chocolate snowballs, the list goes on! There are even ‘Free From’ Fairtrade products available from the Co-op…really does mean everyone can get something Fairtrade and delicious or useful in their stocking this year!
