Fair Trade

25Jun07

Over the last few weeks I’ve started buying Fairtrade teabags, sugar and chocolate. It costs a few pence more and there’s less choice of brands but having looked at their website they really seem to be doing some good work.. it doesn’t make any difference if my sugar costs 90p instead of 70p when I’m spending twenty quid on shopping, but when somebody earns like $1 a week that’s a huge difference. Some folk seem quite reluctant to buy these brands – either because they don’t want to try something new, or else they reckon it’s a scam. For sure I was sceptical myself but after looking particularly at Fairtrade’s site and reading up on them, I’m convinced.
