Bristol Team with Certificate

The Ethical Property Company wins Gold for Best Fairtrade Office!

Every year Fairtrade South West organise their own Business Awards as a way of recognising the various businesses that either use or sell Fairtrade products.

We’re delighted to announce that our Bristol Cluster, which includes Brunswick Court, Colston Street, Picton Street, The Unitarian Chapel and St Michael’s Parish Hall) this year won Gold in the Best Fairtrade Office category!

After the award ceremony, our victorious staff went into the Cathedral’s Chapter House to collect their certificates and tuck into a Fairtrade vegetarian buffet lunch which also gave them the chance to chat with other like-minded organisations.

In the last year the Bristol team have been working hard to improve their Fairtrade purchasing, from using Fairtrade coffee, tea and sugar, to purchasing Fairtrade cotton tea towels for all nine of their kitchens. At Brunswick Court they even created Christmas stockings for all their Tenants which they filled with Fairtrade chocolate coins!

Congratulations to everyone within our Bristol team – we’re looking forward to next year's ceremony already.
