Wear Fair Trade

My friend Bill Barrett sent me a link to this site which introduces the issues of growing and processing cotton in India through a half hour video. It’s very interesting and worth watching if you’re interesting in fair trade. Supporting this is a great way to get your dollars working to build a better tomorrow without having to worry if your charity ends up in the right place. Because it isn’t charity. Fair trade, for me, allows me to feel better about my purchasing. And, if you’d like more incentive, it’s only a week until the 5th anniversary of Lee Kyung Hae‘s death. I’ll be looking for some fair trade cotton products to honour the passing of a man who dedicated his life to improving fairness in world trade.
