Each year, Bristol Fair Trade Network hosts the South West Fair Trade Business Awards to celebrate organisations of all sorts and sizes across the region who support Fair Trade through their business, through the use and purchase of Fair Trade products, or through staff and customer engagement. There are entry categories for workplaces, retailers and manufacturers of all kinds, and the awards are completely free to enter, including a free ticket to the annual ceremony with every application.
The awards offer a framework for organisations to gradually increase their commitment to Fair Trade, so you don’t need to be doing it all to be in with a chance of winning a certificate. As a certificate holder or category winner, your organisation will benefit from direct positive publicity, as well as the continued visibility of being listed in the Local Fair Traders online directory and being part of this growing network of ethical businesses.
See what action you can take and actively encourage other organisations across the city region to do the same.
