Monmouth has been a Fairtrade town since 2005 and has successfully renewed its status twice since then.
The new Monmouth organic cotton Fairtrade town shopping bag is now on sale at Munday and Jones Greengrocer in Church Street, Monmouth Museum in Priory Street and Bridges, Drybridge Park, price £2. Using the bag advertises Monmouth's commitment to Fairtrade producers. It also helps to reduce the use of plastic carriers. Since they don't biodegrade they can become permanent, troublesome clutter, fouling the landscape and harming animals, birds and sealife.
