We’re delighted to welcome Paul Irwin-Rhodes, Head of Sustainability at Greggs, to Oxford on 22nd February (5pm) to kick off Fair Trade Fortnight early. Paul will be telling us about Greggs and their journey and reasons for adopting Fairtrade and sustainable products followed by a discussion and a chance to ask questions.
The event will be held at Nuffield College, New Road, Oxford and we’re really looking forward to it – register to attend here
We often draw attention to the disproportionate effect of climate change on producers in poorer countries, but we also want to emphasise the positive. Fair trade enterprises through invention, creativity and necessity are pioneering new ways to produce and trade in the middle of a climate crisis.

Here are five very short stories from behind the scenes which illustrate Fair Trade’s alternative solutions to global warming: upcycling, natural processes and products, solar power, carbon neutral clothes, triple bottom line.
Each enterprise’s website can also be found within their story
We invite you to come and join us for a Fair Trade and sustainable Picnic in the University Parks on World Fair Trade Day. WFTO are inviting us all to Raise our Hands for Climate Justice #Let’s Do It Fair.
This year World Fair Trade Day particularly wants to raise awareness of Fair Trade’s alternative solutions to the planet’s economic and ecological challenges: we will be providing stories from behind the scenes here to help illustrate this.
Together is always better so bring your own Fair Trade picnic and lets all raise our Oxford hands.
