In the world of clothing, Fairtrade is best known for bringing a better deal to cotton farmers, at the start of the garment supply chain. The Fairtrade Textile Standard is a new initiative to bring Fairtrade benefits across the entire garment sector.
Watch our brand new film Unravelling the Thread, which shines a light on the dark side of the fashion industry, and shows the role consumers can play.
It’s been produced by our Education Team for older school children and young people, so it’s perfect for showing to younger audiences you speak to about Fairtrade, and there are accompanying activities available.
We’re proud to say that the Fairtrade Education team won the Geographical Association Publishers’ Awards for two of their films: Patrick’s Virtual Visit and Can Trade Lift People Out of Poverty? Another film, Under-Appreciated has also been shortlisted in the 2018 Charity Film Awards. We hope you find them as useful when working with younger audiences as the judges in the awards!
