Fairtrade cotton sales dip

Written by Haydn Davis

fairtradeLONDON - Despite a picture of overall growth in Fairtrade products in 2010, sales of Fairtrade cotton items across the UK dipped in 2010.

The latest figures released by the Fairtrade Foundation show that although overall purchases of Fairtrade products rocketed by 40% to an estimated retail value of £1.17 billion, sales of cotton items such as garments, kitchen and bedroom linen and cotton wool slipped to just over 10 million units in 2010, the second consecutive annual drop.
