A bit late to be talking about New Year, though. We're already in May! And tomorrow, the 5th of May, marks the start of the worldwide FairTrade Fortnight.
The FairTrade fortnight starts on the 5th May and ends on the 20th. In the middle is World FairTrade Day - celebrated on the 12th May.
During the next two weeks, try to take some time to eat, drink or buy FairTrade. Try to celebrate the idea behind the FairTrade organisation - justice and equality for all.
Before you (yes, YOU!) go anywhere, do anything or even read the rest of this post, register a Step for World FairTrade Day here.
