Fairtrade Fortnight: Hull proud to be a Fairtrade City

Hull is proud to be a Fairtrade City and has always had time to stand up for social justice. This Fairtrade Fortnight, join us in spreading a simple message: “choose Fairtrade now and help save our favourite foods”. 

Climate change is making crops such as bananas, cocoa and coffee harder and harder to grow.

Combined with deeply unfair trade, communities growing these crops are being pushed to the brink. But… you can help!

Choosing Fairtrade means extra income, power, and support for those communities, as they work to build sustainable and prosperous futures, so choosing Fairtrade is good for people and planet, and it could help save everyday treats like chocolate, bananas and a hot cuppa! 

It’s really easy to show your support for Fairtrade. You can…

  • Choose a Fairtrade brand when you next go shopping for home or workplace
  • Have a Fairtrade cuppa and cake at your team meeting or with friends or family
  • Choose Fairtrade for your Valentine’s chocolates, flowers and wine
  • Use a Fairtrade background for your online meetings … and much more!

Hull is a Fairtrade City all year round, not just for Fairtrade Fortnight. If you would like to get involved in events, support our campaigns, or just to be kept informed, email [email protected] to join the Hull Fairtrade Supporters email list. All are welcome!
