Fairtrade Fortnight 2022
Green Templeton is supporting Fairtrade Fortnight, which takes place this year from Monday 21 February to Sunday 6 March 2022.
The college ensures that only Fairtrade coffee and tea products are served for our conference and dinner refreshments, and in the on-site coffee machines, all available teas are Fairtrade and all coffees are Rainforest Alliance.
Fairtrade is about justice – social, economic and environmental. The growing challenges of climate change affect farmers and workers in the communities that produce our day-to-day products. By being paid a fair rate, farmers, producers, and communities are better equipped to meet their everyday needs and deal with the challenges posed by climate change.
The college is running a Fairtrade raffle this fortnight. To enter, simply buy any Fairtrade chocolate bar in the servery at lunch and we’ll give you 1 free entry. Or buy a bottle of Fairtrade wine at the bar on Thursday or Friday evening and we’ll give you 5️ free entries into the raffle to win our hamper full of Fairtrade goodies worth over £40.
