Workplace Testimonials

Workplaces around the country are taking up the challenge to become Fairtrade Workplaces of World Changers by offering Fairtrade coffee, tea and sugar.

If you are thinking of applying, take a look below at some of those who have already made the commitment, and their reasons for doing so.

  • Langlee
    P5 pupils have been working towards gaining a Fairtrade award for our school. As part of their work they sent a letter to the staffroom asking the staff to switch to Fairtrade products. The staff voted and agreed to change to Fairtrade. The P5 pupils are thrilled that they have made a difference to our staff room and to people all around the world.

  • Virgin Money
    Virgin Money takes its social responsibilities very seriously and all of our Stores and Lounges use Fairtrade products. By doing so the benefits are clear – we are investing in businesses and communities around the world. It’s a great fit with our ‘everyone’s better off’ ethos. Every time a customer pops into a Virgin Money Lounge and enjoys a cup of tea, they are also helping to make a difference to people’s lives around the world.

    We are very proud of not only our environmental commitment but our ethical commitment too. By supporting Fairtrade and stocking the products in all our drinks machines, we know we are having a positive impact on the farmers and workers and that feels good!
