Eco-Veggie Fair embraces Fairtrade

The Eco-Veggie Fair, held this year at Bristol's harbourside, has recognised the crucial role Fairtrade plays in a sustainable lifestyle. Adam Gardner from the Fairtrade Foundation led one of the talks at the Fair about 'Fairtrade in the Age of Climate Change', and the Fairtrade stall included free Fairtrade fruit for people to sample, donated by the Co-op. Organiser, Tim Yaoh, plans to increase the Fairtrade presence next year with a Fairtrade Zone.
