We work hard to make it easy for you to make your school a Fairtrade School!
Rainbow Turtle works closely with schools throughout Renfrewshire to help provide our future generations with the message, ethics and activities of trading fairly
Your school can support Renfrewshire's status as a Fairtrade Zone
Fairtrade is committed to improving the lives of millions of people who live in poverty in developing countries. Renfrewshire council, organisations and volunteers worked hard together to achieve Fairtrade Zone status for Renfrewshire, awarded in 2009.; A much larger campaign is underway as the Scottish Fairtrade Forum is working towards getting Fairtrade status for Scotland.
There are many opportunities for introducing Fairtrade into daily school life. Fairtrade can provide an excellent starting point for global citizenship in the curriculum.
By participating in Fairtrade you will be contributing to the campaign and directly benefiting people in developing countries.

Rainbow Turtle offers a wide variety of Fairtrade products and has different packages to suit your needs. We have a great range of Fairtrade food and drinks including, of course, the many varieties of Divine chocolate (and a wide selection of healthier Fairtrade options) as well as a colourful and interesting selection of fairly traded craft items that we can supply you with on a sale or return basis.
We can help:
Fairtrade Tuck Shops
Fairtrade Event Stalls
We provide products either via Sale or Return or via Order.
Sale or return involves collecting a set of products on the arranged date, and returning the unsold goods along with the money for those which are sold.
Alternatively, an Order can be placed, in which case all goods are purchased and you will receive an invoice for the total amount; An order requires opening an account, however you receive a 10% discount on the products.
Traidcraft has a variety of online resources that are widely used by schools that are involved in Fairtrade. Click here for the Traidcraft schools resources page
