As part of 'Fairtrade week' we explored where cotton comes from and how it is made. We located countries which grow cotton and those which are involved in selling Fairtrade cotton. We considered the impact Fairtrade has on families and communities and how we are connected to others both locally and globally. Also, we investigated where foods such as sugar and rice come from and how Fairtrade affects people in our world.
We found out that, as a result of us buying Fairtrade products, children belonging families in poorer parts of the world, can get a good education. We also learned how people are able to have simple things like electricity and fresh water which we take for granted, as a direct consequence of Fairtrade.
