Ethical Weddings Fairtrade Fortnight Challenge


The start of Fairtrade Fortnight in the UK today sees the start of a challenge for Alex Prince, a writer for online magazine Ethical Weddings. She has set herself the task of finding a different Fairtrade wedding item for every day of the Fairtrade Fortnight. Alex says, "I'm a strong believer in the principles of fair trade and I want to show people how they can make this a part of their special day...and in doing so, make it even more special!" Alex wrote about her own ethical wedding in The Guardian last year. Katie Fewings, Co-founder of Ethical Weddings, has said, "I think Alex's idea is an excellent one. It's what Ethical Weddings is all about - taking positive action and giving everyone something to celebrate: the couple and their friends and family, and the workers who are receiving a fair wage for their products, from wine to chocolate, and fabrics to jewellery." You can follow Alex's quest through Fairtrade Fortnight on the Ethical Weddings Blog where she will report her daily findings.
