Summer activity for fairtrade campaigners

Have your say

Buying fairtrade bananas to ensure a fairer life for others is a priority for many in Bexhill say campaigners.

The Bexhill Fairtrade committee has been collecting signatures from residents demanding this should be a 100% fairtrade banana town, and report that two of the main supermarkets are backing their efforts by stocking nothing but ethically produced bananas.

The group is still concerned that only one in three of the 13 million bananas eaten every day in the UK is fairly traded, and member Alan Bearne said: “That means that more than half bananas sold are unfair and support child labour today - those children should be having an education for their future.”
