Fair Trade Electorate Office

11 May 2015

In recognition of Fair Trade Fortnight (May 8 – May 22, 2015), my electorate office in Brighton has just become fair trade accredited, ensuring that we do our bit to support decent, dignified work practices and sustainable economic development in developing countries.

I have been passionate about fair trade since working in Uganda in 2007 and this was reinvigorated through my meeting with World Vision representatives and my January 2015 trip with World Vision to Zimbabwe. This led me to pursuing fair trade accreditation for my office and for the South Australian Parliament.

I encourage all local organisations to make the switch to fair trade.
