The new Chepstow Fair Trade Flag
The aims of our group are:-
- To promote the concept of Fairtrade.
- To raise awareness in the Chepstow area of the Fairtrade mark and promote sales of products which carry it.
- To maintain Fairtrade Town status for Chepstow.
Membership of the Forum is open to any individual or organisation in the area which shares our objectives as listed above. The activities of the Forum are organised by the Steering Group and all members are welcome to join the Steering Group and attend meetings. We take part in and organise local Fairtrade Fortnight events at the end of February and beginning of March each year.
The Fairtrade logo is a waving person against a background of grass and sky. Look for this Mark on products when you shop. It guarantees the producers have been paid a fair price for their products.
