This year I organised World Fair Trade Day at the inspirational Home Grown Children's Eco Nursery, Dubai and the United Arab Emirates with the support of a few friends.

The very delicious fair trade cakes were baked my dear friend Saima. The frosting contained Green & Blacks Maya Gold and 70% Dark Chocolate.

Teachers, parents and children came together to form a human chain and show their support for fair trade producers around the world.

I also raised the profile of fair trade producers by setting up a stall for parents and conducted a fair trade photo shoot with children and parents to show support for fair trade cotton farmers Agrocel (India) and SEKEM (Egypt).

Six Items Challenge 2019 with Labour Behind The Label
Six Items Challenge 2019 with Labour Behind The Label

So here I am for the eighth consecutive year I'm participating in the Six Items Challenge with Labour Behind The Label.

This year the challenge commences 6th March - 18th April March 2019.

I have decided to participate and support the Six Items Challenge for the eighth year because I started to campaign for garment and factory workers while caring for my mother who had been diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.

The six items challenge means I choose six items of clothing to wear for six weeks.

Don't worry!

This does not include under garments or exercise gear. You can wear an endless supply of these. :)
