We're so proud of our wee city at this time of year. Over a million new people will be descending upon Edinburgh duringAugust for shows, shopping and all of the culinary delights our beautiful home has to offer. It's even better that we have been able to call ourselves a Fair Trade City for 12 years now too, one of 619 fair trade towns and cities in the UK.
The Edinburgh Fair Trade City Group runs events in the city, keep us committed to the title, and provide support to fair trade organisations in Edinburgh. They have designed a great range of Edinburgh Loves Fairtrade t-shirts and tote bags for fair trade organisations in Edinburgh to sell.
have produced and printed the Edinburgh Loves Fairtrade t-shirts - available for £15 from One World Shop (sizes xs - xl). KoolSkools are a great organisation who mostly produce school uniforms and has a completely ethical supply chain. You might have met Pamela L'Intellegent who visited the UK during Fairtrade Fortnight 2016. Pamela is a seamstress at KoolSkools, and she spoke about how working with KoolSkools changed her life.
