Fairtrade at St. Mary’s Menston
Fairtrade products are those which have been produced by people around the world who have been paid a fair price. These products have been produced in safe working conditions and the producers have also been paid a social premium to spend on developing their community’s health, education and infrastructure. Fairtrade is a guarantee of justice.
St. Mary's are very proud to call ourselves a Fairtrade school. Through student led activities, our annual FairTrade Fortnight, promoting the use and sale of Fairtrade products and informing ourselves about the injustices that producers face around the world, we are continuing our public pledge to support Fairtrade.
