Now you know a little more about Fair Trade and what it is all about, take a look at the Fair Trade logo. This logo is found on all Fair Trade products to show people that it is Fair Trade.
It is known around the world as the Fair Trade symbol.
You have 2 choices this afternoon, you can either;
1. Redesign the fair trade logo (take the logo and change little bits so that it still looks similar but a little different.)
2. Design a totally new logo so it looks completely different.
Some ideas -
You can design a logo using fair trade wrappers (actual wrappers if you can or drawings of wrappers)
A logo that shows the fair trade countries
A logo that shows fair trade farmers and families
A logo that shows needs and wants of fair trade families like Therese's
