Bristol celebrates 10 years as a Fairtrade city
Community and business leaders gathered recently to celebrate Bristol’s 10 years as a Fairtrade City.
It is one of only five cities in the world that have held this status continually for more than 10 years.
The Right Honourable, the Lord Mayor of Bristol, Councillor Alastair Watson, opened the event, and stressed how important it is that Bristol continues to trade fairly.
Mayor George Ferguson also attended, saying: “Trading fairly is essential to alleviating world poverty and achieving global equality and I am extremely proud of Bristol’s international reputation for Fairtrade campaigning.”
