Melrose has become the third town in the Scottish Borders to be awarded Fairtrade status.
The achievement recognises the large number of local businesses that stock Fairtrade products.
- Poll: do you buy Fairtrade?
The town's Fairtrade group hopes the recognition will lead to even more people buying Fairtrade products.
There's also a push to teach local children about what Fairtrade means.
At Melrose Primary School can buy Fairtrade products from a special monthly tuck shop.
