We’re smack bang in the middle of Fairtrade Fortnight, and already we’ve seen heaps of events, forums, dinners, guest appearances and, of course, many many swaps. Our Fairtrade producers Senarath Yatigammana and Cecilia Granadino have been touring the country, appearing at various events and talks. We’ve already completed two out of our three live webchats, but you can still tune in to talk to Cecilia at 3pm tomorrow. You can also come into one of our Oxfam Shops and meet with Senarath as he tours the country – check out the list of events here. It’s also great to see so many companies make the swap to fairtrade – Starbucks and San Churro are now both providing fairtrade products in their stores, with each celebrating with free giveaways:
- jump into any Starbucks on Friday throughout May, purchase a 250g bag of Fairtrade Espresso and receive any Tall Espresso Beverage for free.
- walk into a San Churro store on Wednesdays in May and grab a free regular Organic Fairtrade coffee.
