We need YOU to become a Fairtrade Detective.

We are looking for recruits to act as “Fair Trade Detectives” and help to build up our directory of shops, cafes, etc. who supply Fairtrade goods in and around Garstang.

We’ve made a start, but in order to fill the Directory and keep it up to date we need “Fairtrade Detectives” to track down Fairtrade goods and shops then enter the details using our 

Online Form so as we can add them to the Directory.

You might be      

  • An undercover detective - adding items as you see them on your weekly shopping  
  • An interrogator - ask the shop staff if they can point out which fair trade items, they sell so you can add them to the Directory. You can show them a copy of the Directory, so they know what we are doing. Be polite. Tell them we want to buy fair trade goods from them. We are happy for retailers to use the online form themselves as it gets them thinking about Fairtrade and seeing the value of stocking Fairtrade goods.
  • A recruiting sergeant - getting other people, or maybe groups (brownies, youth clubs, knitting circles, etc.) to look for fair trade goods and help add them to the Directory.
