A fashion event by Fair and Green, a local business selling British ethical fashion, will prove that fairly traded clothing and jewellery is also stylish and beautiful.
Short videos of cotton farmers and garment and jewellery makers, produced by the Fairtrade Foundation and People Tree, will show how fair trade can change lives of local communities in Africa and Asia. There will also be stalls offering responsible fashion and beauty products for sale.
The event is free and open to all. However, places are limited and bookings are recommended via the website. The event is part of Fairtrade Fortnight 2013 celebrations in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Newcastle Fairtrade Partnership aims to promote Fairtrade within the city by working with local people, businesses, educational institutions and public services. Newcastle has a long history of Fairtrade and became a Fairtrade City in 2003.
