Directory of Co-operatives
Carlisle World Shop is conveniently situated in Carlisle city centre. In three rooms, you can browse a wide range of Fairtrade and Fairly Traded products that don't cost the earth. Customers are drawn to our shop because of the unique quality that comes from products individually made from sustainable and often recycled materials. And there is a story behind every product - a story of changed lives!
A new Co-operative was formed in 2014, following the retirement of the previous owner, to run the shop. The shop is a well-established focal point of Fair Trade in Carlisle, working in partnership with producers, consumers and the community.
The Co-operative’s aim is to make sure that this valuable asset continues to provide a hub for people who care about the origins of the food, gifts and homeware that they buy and for them to be actively involved in supporting the producers.
