Fair Trade Towns

Make your city, town, municipality or village a Fair Trade Town.

Fair trade supporters across the country have joined together to make their city, town, municipality or village a Fair Trade Town and to make a commitment to supporting Fairtrade and using licensed products with the FAIRTRADE Mark.

See below to find out more about Fair Trade Towns, how to apply for designation and tips on how to keep up the momentum. If you are on Facebook, you can also join the Fair Trade Town group.

    Each Fair Trade Town campaign is unique and the way in which Fair Trade designation is achieved will be different for every community. These are some ideas and suggestions on how to get started, get people involved, and get inspired!

    Involve the Town

    Try and let as many people as possible know about your plans to achieve Fair Trade status. Why not organize an open meeting to tell people about Fairtrade and get them excited about becoming a Fair Trade Town? You could invite local stores to donate some Fairtrade products to sample and talk about your plans for the community to be Fair Trade designated.
