Fair Trade Week is a tradition that has been celebrated in Estonia for ten years. NGO Mondo has been the project leader since 2013. The aim of this week is to draw attention to the real origin of products and introduce fair trade as an way to make ethical purchase decisions. Here at Solo Sokos Hotel Estoria, we contribute to fair trade week on a daily basis, as we are the first and only hotel in Estonia that has received the title of Friend of Fair Trade by NGO Mondo. Fairtrade labelled products await our guests in the hotel rooms and cosy coffee lounges. Altogether, 50,000 different fair trade products – including shower gels, shampoos, conditioners, body lotions and fair trade tea – are used in the hotel every year.
Many companies throughout Estonia within the network of Friends of Fair Trade – including shops, schools, hotels, cafes, restaurants, importers, producers and wholesalers – are actively taking part in this Fair Trade week (15.10-21.10 ). Each and every one of us can contribute by making fair purchase decisions. During the week, people can play radio games, test their knowledge in a quiz, compare shopping carts in shops, and try fair trade coffee, tea, sweets, wine and more.
