Fairtrade at Central

fairtrade logo

Central Methodist Church Launceston is a Fairtrade Church and it strives to meet the three goals set out by the Fairtrade Foundation, which are to:

1. Use Fairtrade tea and coffee after services and in all meetings for which the Church has responsibility.
2. Encourage the use of other Fairtrade products such as sugar, biscuits and fruit.
3. Promote Fairtrade during the year through events, worship and other activities whenever possible.

 

The Fairtrade Foundation is the independent non-profit organisation that licenses use of the FAIRTRADE Mark on products in the UK in accordance with internationally agreed Fairtrade standards. The Foundation was established in 1992 by CAFOD, Christian Aid, Oxfam, Traidcraft and the World Development Movement, later joined by the National Federation of Women’s Institutes. Member organisations now also include Banana Link, Methodist Relief and Development Fund, Nicaragua Solidarity Campaign, People & Planet, SCIAF, Shared Interest Foundation, Soroptimist International , Tearfund and the United Reformed Church.

 

The Fairtrade Foundation vision is of a world in which justice and sustainable development are at the heart of trade structures and practices so that everyone, through their work, can maintain a decent and dignified livelihood and develop their full 

potential.

 

To achieve this vision, Fairtrade seeks to transform trading structures and practices in favour of the poor and disadvantaged. By facilitating trading partnerships based on equity and transparency, Fairtrade contributes to sustainable development for marginalised producers, workers and their communities. Through demonstration of alternatives to conventional trade and other forms of advocacy, the Fairtrade movement empowers citizens to campaign for an international trade system based on justice and fairness.
