Fairtrade


 

Neston Methodist Church has committed to being a Fairtrade Church since February 2012.

This means agreeing to serve Fairtrade coffee/tea/sugar/biscuits and displaying the Fairtrade Certificate.

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices (which must never fall lower than the market price), Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.


We have committed to:

  • Use Fairtrade tea and coffee for all meetings for which we have responsibility
  • Move forward on using other Fairtrade products (such as sugar, biscuits, chocolate and fruit)
  • Promote Fairtrade during Fairtrade Fortnight and during the year through events, worship and other activities where possible.
