This year the Fairtrade Foundation is asking the nation to show off about buying Fairtrade which offers 7.5 million people in the developing world a more secure future. The fun-filled fortnight has been launched just as figures reveal that Fairtrade sales amounted to over £1 billion in 2010, and increase of over 40% on the previous year.
You can show off Fairtrade any way you want. Take part in a bunting record attempt, hold a fashion show with your friends, or be loud and proud about how your school supports farmers and workers in developing countries.
So it is time to get inspired and get ready to Show Off Your Label.
