Speak to local community leaders and organisations

As well as businesses that sell Fair Trade, there are lots of local community organisations that use Fair Trade and can help spread the word about its importance. Ask them if they would consider switching to Fair Trade and helping to raise awareness wherever possible. Organisations you could approach include:

  • Community groups

  • Community councils

  • Local environmental groups

  • Charities and charity shops

  • Youth groups

  • Local volunteer centres.

You could also speak to local community leaders to get their support for Fair Trade and see if there’s anything they can do to help spread the word. This could include your MP, MSP, Councillors and Community Councillors, as well as other leaders in your local community.
