Castle Douglas Fair Trade
This is a group who help promote Fair Trade trading and goods within the Castle Douglas retail businesses. Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. All that we want is a fair world. Castle Douglas became a Fairtrade Town in September 2010 and has a group, open to all, that organises stalls and events to promote the ethos of Fairtrade.
The mission of the group is to work with individuals, community groups and businesses to make sure that everyone gets a fair price for their hard work. We want to bring everyone together to make a change in the world so that everyone gets a fair share of money for their hard work. But most importantly we want everyone to recognize and understand what Fairtrade is.
