Small Steps Change The World

It’s Fairtrade Fortnight 2020 and as usual we are SHOUTING about the fact that supporting and buying Fairtrade is a little step to change the world. And we invite our friends and Fairtrade Fortnight Conference Sponsors Social Progress to the guest blog to share the steps they take……..


Hello! We’re Social Progress Ltd. We are a Social Media Consultancy based in the heart of Honley. We’re passionate about supporting Fairtrade and often use our social media to spread the word about #FairtradeFortnight. We’re excited to be Conference Partners again and look forward to seeing many more young children learn about the importance of Fairtrade and, hopefully, choose to support Fairtrade as they grow and develop in their individual lives. This is something which can be passed from generation to generation.



Here at Social Progress we believe that supporting Fairtrade in the little things can make a big difference. That’s why we are proud to be a Fairtrade business. We choose to buy Fairtrade coffee, Fairtrade tea and Fairtrade sugar for the office for our daily refreshments and of course meetings with clients. By making the small decision to buy Fairtrade we’re helping the producers to get a fair price for their work. After all, you wouldn’t be happy if you worked hard and didn’t get paid would you? So why should the people who grow and produce most of the products we take for granted be treated any differently?


Social Progress is an active member of the Holme Valley Fairtrade group and we’re excited to be Conference Partners again for the three fairandfunky Fairtrade Conference for Schools in 2020! We’re passionate about helping to raise awareness about the Fairtrade standard and look forward to supporting these awesome events at local schools in the Huddersfield area. The Fairtrade Conferences for Schools are a fantastic opportunity to help educate school children and teachers about Fairtrade and the importance of making a conscious decision to support it. By teaching the children at a young age they will, hopefully, grow up more conscious of the effects of Fairtrade and it will become part of their daily lifestyle. You might not think that a social media agency has much to do with Fairtrade but if you decide to choose Fairtrade whenever you can, you’re already making a difference. Here’s to more children and teenagers learning about the importance of choosing Fairtrade and, in the words of fairandfunky themselves, “take small steps to change the world”.
