Fairtrade Fortnight

23 February - 8 March 2015


Lewisham was awarded Fairtrade status in 2005 with many local shops, cafes and community venues offering certified Fairtrade products. The Council has a Fairtrade Directory and for Sydenham this includes: Clifton Aquatics, The Coop, Lidl, Tesco and Well Being Health Foods.

For many years I have supported Fair Trade and this is a photo encouraging residents to swop to Fairtrade produce so that developing world producers get a better deal. I buy Fairtrade goods wherever I can including chocolate, tea, coffee, sugar and bananas.
