An audience with Fairtrade's 'Eco Queen', Harriet Lamb

The Fairtrade movement has become a huge marketing force in recent years, with a massive increase in sales and a few big corporates starting to sign up to this more ethical approach to business. And Harriet Lamb, who helped kick off the UK Fairtrade Association about 10 years ago, is one of the women responsible for making this change happen. So, if you want to hear from an inspiring speaker, eat a few nibbles and drink a few Fairtrade cocktails, buy your tickets here for an event being hosted by Good magazine at Image Centre's swanky new premises on Wednesday 22 June. 

Lamb, who describes herself as both a capitalist and a human rights campaigner, has crawled through the plantations of the developing world to uncover the truth about our bananas and coffee. And she was so appalled by the cases of poisoning and other abuses of banana plantation workers that she returned to the UK and became a driving force behind the UK Fairtrade Foundation.

We have a couple of complimentary tickets to give away so, if you want to attend, email editor@stoppress.co.nz with Fairtrade in the subject line.

And check out the Facebook page and read a backgrounder article from Good. Or else.
