Fairtrade Poole

Poole officially achieved Fairtrade Town status at the end of July 2016.

This prestigious award is in recognition of our commitment to promoting Fairtrade products and principles.

In order to achieve Fairtrade Town status, we worked towards these criteria:

  • we passed a resolution supporting Fairtrade, and to serve Fairtrade products at meetings in the Civic Centre
  • a range of Fairtrade Mark products in local shops and eateries
  • half of all places of worship in Poole promoting and using Fairtrade products
  • over 40% of primary and secondary schools teach pupils about Fairtrade (at least four are officially Fairtrade schools)
  • gaining a flagship employer supporting Fairtrade (the RNLI college)

Poole's Fairtrade steering group meets regularly, and is made up of:

  • Borough of Poole
  • Bournemouth and Poole College
  • RNLI College
  • Poole Chaplaincy
  • Poole Grammar School
  • Poole Housing Partnership
  • Poole Methodist Church
