Let’s take a look inside February’s Box from Between Green Boxes!
This month’s theme is FAIRTRADE FEBRUARY!
Fairtrade Fortnight 2023 is taking place from the 27th February until the 12th March. The message for Fairtrade Fortnight this year is clear – make small switches to Fairtrade products. This is what Between Green is all about!
Fairtrade is so much more than coffee and chocolate, as you’ll discover in February’s Between Green Subscription Box.
When you choose Fairtrade, you support communities and farmers with fair wages and working conditions.
