Opening New Doors To Fairer Trade

Fairtrade LutonGiant bananas and chocolate bars will be decorating the door to High Town Methodist Church Hall for one day only.

The idea is to celebrate ethically produced drinks and snacks this Fairtrade Fortnight. Euro MP Alex Mayer will officially open the door to join The Luton Council of Faiths and the Luton Fairtrade Steering Group before enjoying some tasty fairtrade treats inside.

The Fairtrade Foundation is collecting pictures of decorated doors from across the UK and beyond to showcase how the fairtrade movement is a part of communities from Luton to Liberia.

Alex Mayer MEP is a long-time supporter of the Fairtrade movement in the European Parliament and has previously backed calls for stronger checks on 'blood diamonds' imported from war zones that are used in popular mobile 'phones and gadgets.

Labour Euro MP Alex Mayer said:

"It was an open and shut case that I’d want to support this campaign! When you choose Fairtrade you are helping to ensure that the person who grew the banana you are eating, or the coffee beans used to make your drink, was paid fairly for their work. Everything tastes much better knowing no-one suffered any exploitation, so let’s all keep opening more doors to Fairtrade.”
