As well as campaigning for local ethical consumerism, the Ludlow Fairtrade Town Group also promote and support wider campaigns in line with Fair Trade values.

Public awareness for, and appreciation of, ethical consumerism and environmental issues has grown over the past decade. There is, however, still a long way to go. Thankfully there are several national and multi-national not-profits whose sole purpose is to fight for a fairer, greener world.

carbon cop out

Transform Trade

In the UK we’ve outsourced emissions to the countries that produce our food, clothes and gadgets. Right now the UK has no target to cut these outsourced carbon emissions – despite the fact that they account for just under half of our carbon footprint.

We need to take responsibility for our true carbon footprint… it’s time we set a target to reduce our offshore emissions too.

Fight for Living Incomes

Fairtrade Foundation

The Fairtrade Foundation launched the Living Incomes Campaign at a time when the global price for cocoa had just crashed, pushing many farmers deeper into poverty, creating an even more urgent situation for the millions of families relying on cocoa production.

Their vision for living incomes is both radical and simple; they want all cocoa farmers to earn a living income from growing cocoa. Will you help us achieve this?

fashion watchdog

Transform Trade

Too many fashion retailers cut corners to squeeze out profits, at the expense of the people who make our clothes.

Fashion retailers must change the way they do business and treat their suppliers properly and fairly. We need a Fashion Watchdog to change how clothing retailers do business and help improve the lives of millions of garment workers around the world.
