Co-operatives Fortnight

Co-operatives Fortnight 19 June – 3 July is the brainchild of Co-operatives UK, promoting co-operatives and co-operation across the UK.

To celebrate Co-operatives Fortnight and to show everyone how easy it is to get involved, we’re asking everyone to make a pledge to be more co-operative.

It’s really easy to do. Here are some things you could try without making any big changes.

Buy co-operatively:

  • Buy from your local community shop or farmers market
  • Try co-operative services like the Phone Co-op
  • Buy wholefoods e.g. coffee or nuts from Equal Exchange or Not Just Nuts
  • Buy in bulk with a group of friends to get lower prices – that’s a buyers co-operative

Act co-operatively:

Think co-operatively:

So visit www.walescoop.com/pledge/ and tell us what you’re going to do to support co-operatives during Co-operatives Fortnight!

More information about Co-operatives Fortnight can also be found on the website www.thereisanalternative.org.

For more information about co-operatives in Wales, see the Wales Co-operative Centre’s website.
