Why not make your town a Fairtrade town? We did it in Westport.


To become a Fairtrade Town (or any other populated area), 5 goals must be met:



  1. The local council must pass a resolution supporting Fairtrade, and serve Fairtrade coffee and tea at its meetings and in offices and canteens.

  2. A range of Fairtrade products must be readily available in the area’s shops and served in local caf├ęs and catering establishments (targets are set in relation to population)

  3. Fairtrade products must be used by a number of local work places (estate agents, hairdressers etc) and community organisations (churches, schools etc)

  4. Attract media coverage and popular support for the campaign

  5. A local Fairtrade steering group must be convened to ensure continued commitment to Fairtrade Town status.
