Sustainability Trust is supporting Fairtrade Fortnight 2018, which runs from August 3 to 16 — and shines a spotlight on all things fair trade. Fair trade is about stable prices, decent working conditions — and empowering farmers and workers around the world.
Wellington leads New Zealand in fair trade. In 2009, we became the first Fair Trade Capital City in the Southern Hemisphere. With more than 100 fair trade retailers (and many, many supporters) fair trade is lighting up Wellington City.
During Wellington’s Fair Trade Fortnight, the best of fair trade in our capital is on show — with a series of talks, films, pop-up shops and other exciting events.
Last financial year, we provided the highest number of free, lined curtains ever to families with Community Services Cards. To be exact, we gave 2462 sets of curtains to 604 households! But we want to give out even more this year before our Wellington Curtain Bank closes on 30 November.
