It's Fairtrade fortnight now until 9 March and you really can make a difference.

Go online and make a stand about unfair conditions for the producers of our food around the world.

Or go to the shops and buy products showing the Fairtrade mark:

There's a unique plan this Fairtrade Fortnight to transform the banana industry and there really is no need now to buy one of our favourite fruits from less scrupulous sources.

In case you don't know, the ethos behind Fairtrade is to give farmers and workers around the world a fair price for what they grow and produce. It's not rocket science and there's some argument that if we were more fair with our shopping, we'd have to give less in international aid.

So, go online and check it out: http://www.fairtrade.org.uk/
