Traidcraft Reject Black Friday

Across the internet and social media there is no escape from Black Friday.

It’s estimated UK shoppers will spend a staggering £7 billion on Black Friday deals.

In a stand against what they described as a “mindless feeding frenzy” the team at Christian charity Traidcraft are to down tools and split into teams to address the injustices they see in society.

Team 1: Will be addressing social injustice by running a refreshment station open to all, at Newcastle Cathedral, as well as offering jute bags filled with toiletries for the homeless in our local area.

Team 2: Will be addressing environmental injustice by heading outside to tend to our office gardens and grounds, addressing our own carbon footprint.

Team 3: Will be addressing the maintenance of our own environment at our Gateshead HQ, restructuring our offices to create a positive working environment which reflects our culture.

Premier’s Northern Correspondent Ian Britton has been to meet Traidcraft CEO Robin Roth to find out more.
