Fairtrade Towns in UK

Great to hear that there will be another Fairtrade Town in the UK next year. Plans are afoot to make Cumbernauld a Fairtrade town alongside Motherwell up in North Lanarkshire.

There are many Fairtrade towns around the UK and it began back in 2000 with Garstang in Lancashire when it stated they were ‘the Worlds first Fairtrade Town’. There are over 500 Fairtrade Towns with more to come as more towns are planning to apply.

So what is a Fairtrade town? A Fairtrade Town is any area such as a town, city, village, county, zone, island or borough that is committed to supporting Fairtrade and making sure that products with the FAIRTRADE Mark are used (from Fairtrade Foundation). Anywhere can achieve a Fairtrade status and everyone should be involved.

Here at Acorn Printing we fully support Fairtrade and organic clothing, we have a great range of Fairtrade clothing that you personalise for yourself, event for business. Please get in touch if you’d like to find out more about our Fairtrade policy and clothing.

Fairtrade & Organic Clothing for Societies

At Acorn Printing we have a great range of Fairtrade & Organic Clothing for Societies at great prices. They can be personalised with your societies name, members name and your designs via printing or embroidery.

Check out our EPONA Men’s T Shirt which is Fairtrade and Organic. In fact, Epona was one of the first companies to be awarded the Fairtrade Foundation cotton certification. There is no difference in Fairtrade cotton and normal cotton quality, the difference is the farmer who has grown the cotton has been paid the right price for it.

For hoodies have a look at our Earth Positive Men’s Hoodie which is made from 100% organic cotton, ethically made which is audited by Fare Wear Foundation and manufactured using sustainable energy which means the carbon footprint of this hoodie is tiny compared to other garments.
