We are now on Week 2 of Fairtrade Fortnight 2015!
On Friday 6th March we will be launching our #FairForWomen Twitter campaign. It is a celebration of both International Women's Day and Fairtrade Fortnight. We are hoping that the campaign will get people thinking and discussing about the ways in which Fair Trade, women's rights, and sustainable development are connected. For more information about the campaign click here.
The Instagram photo contest is still on this week so make sure to be sending in as many pictures as you can from the producer tours. To enter just tweet/post your photos with the hashtag #fairtradenation and the best one will be shared on our timelines every day. At the end of Fairtrade Fortnight 2015 there will be an overall winner who will win a lovely Fair Trade prize. For more details click here.

Week 2 will be continuing the Fair Trade producer tours across Scotland. They will be speaking at numerous events to discuss their personal experiences with Fair Trade, and the positive impact it has on their lives and the lives of their community.
