Fairtrade Fortnight & we visit the Rise & Shine Cafe

FairtradelogoFairtrade fortnight continues until Sunday 13th March. The call to action for 2016 is, ‘Sit down for breakfast & stand up for farmers. Make your breakfast count!’ It’s all about raising awareness that too many farmers around the world work hard all year but still can’t earn enough to feed their own families. It’s worth checking out the UK’s Fairtrade Fortnight 2016 campaign website www.fairtrade.org.uk/breakfast to see what everyday choices you can take to make the world a better, fairer place!

Meanwhile, at Rosy Rosie, we continue with our celebration of Fairtrade Fortnight with our 20% off our Fairtrade ranges (see our previous Blog for details and code) including Pebble (handmade toy rattles & soft toy sets for newborns) & Lanka Kade (wooden jigsaws and play sets.)

On a lighter note – inspired by our friends at Best Years (our suppliers of Pebble Toys) and our youngest daughter – here are some pictures of the Pebble toys enjoying breakfasts from around the world at the ‘Rise & Shine Cafe.’

Best Years have asked people to send in pictures of their toys enjoying breakfast, whilst our littlest had a school project to interpret the phrase ‘Rise & Shine.’

She chose (totally independently) to make out of Fimo Clay four ‘world’ breakfasts from the UK, USA, Japan and Turkey.

She researched their foods, drew ideas, dragged Daddy down to the arts shop to buy the Fimo and got to work. We love her results and have borrowed her creations to stage our own international breakfasts!!
