Hub: Fair trade and ethical shopping

Posted by Anne Witton on Monday, November 23, 2015 Under: Hub


Our Hub last Thursday was entitled 'Faith and fair trade – the spirituality of shopping'. Tessa Bees from Traidcraft shared her personal reflections on why fair trade matters to her. We explored what motivates us to make sacrifices for others and how small choices we make can have a huge impact on the world around us.

Discussion questions
  1. What matters most to you when you decide where to shop / what to buy? (Price, convenience, brand, store loyalty, ethical values etc.)
  2. What are the root causes of poverty?
  3. How do your belief systems affect how you treat others?
  4. What small changes could you make that would help transform lives?
