Generate Publicity

Help to spread the word by securing some publicity for Fair Trade. Find a local Fair Trade story, such as a business switching to Fair Trade or an event held to raise awareness of Fair Trade, and try and get it into the media. Or perhaps you could send an opinion piece or letter to the local media in support of Fair Trade. Anything you can do to get Fair Trade into the media will help spread the word to many more people, and local newspapers and radio stations are always keen to find interesting stories.

Social media is also a fantastic way of spreading the word. You could blog about your thoughts on Fair Trade, you could share articles on your Facebook page for your friends to read, and you could tweet about events taking place and Fair Trade products you’ve bought.

Please have a look at some of the other Start Campaigning pages to help give you more ideas and support.
