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.

Fight for Living Incomes
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?
