GREEN PARTY EURO-MP TO ADDRESS FAIRTRADE EVENING

Event: Caroline Lucas MEP speaks at Milton Keynes Fairtrade
evening
Place: City Discovery Centre, Bradwell Abbey, Milton Keynes MK13
9AP
Time: TODAY, Thursday, May 25th, 7pm (reception starts 6.30pm)

GREEN Party MEP Caroline Lucas has welcomed a Milton Keynes scheme to
persuade shoppers to buy more ‘Fairtrade’ goods.

Ahead of a spring reception taking place at the City Discovery Centre
tonight (Thursday, May 25th), Dr Lucas said Milton Keynes had one of the
best records in the region for ethical shopping, thanks to the efforts of
the Fairtrade Forum – and the Sust! Shop which sells only ‘Fairtrade’ goods.

“Every time we buy something imported from the developing world we face a
choice: whether to buy from Fairtrade, or another ethical scheme or
co-operative which guarantees a fair price for the producers, or a
profit-led corporate retailer, which doesn’t,” said Dr Lucas, who is the
Green Party’s principal Speaker and a member of the European Parliament’s
international Trade Committee.

“A recent study conducted for the Milton Keynes Fairtrade Forum found that
eight of ten shoppers here said they would be prepared to spend a little
more if it meant workers were treated and paid well. One in four Milton
Keynes residents buys a Fairtrade product at least once a month.”

“This is one of the best records in the region. By persuading the council
and so many local business and residents to switch to Fairtrade, the Milton
Keynes Fairtrade Forum here has made a real difference to the lives of some
of the world’s poorest workers.

Dr Lucas will discuss the responsibility of employers to treat their workers
well, and the role of ethical trade in sustainable development during
tonight’s meeting, which will also be addressed by Peter Williams of the
Sust! Project and Debbie Greaves, chair of the Milton Keynes Fairtrade
Forum, who will launch the Milton Keynes ‘Global Centre’ project.

Dr Lucas added: “Ultimately it should be the role of Government to ensure
workers are paid fairly and properly treated – but until the Government
requires all firms to fully respect workers’ rights as a condition of access
to UK markets, the job is left to shoppers.”

The discussion will be followed by a raffle – offering Fairtrade prizes, and
refreshments.
