Fair Trade

Pernel posted a quote from Colossians Remixed that sparked quite the discussion. Just thought I'd point people to the Fair Trade web site. Fair Trade started out as way to make sure that the people who grow the coffee in the third world get a fair deal. They've branched out to other things like tea.

I've spotted Fair Trade Coffee at one Starbucks here in town. Ask you local coffee shop about Fair Trade Coffee.

- Peace

You can also get fair trade chocolate (another plantation crop with along history of abuse to workers). In Edmonton I buy Coco Camino brand at Earth's General Store, and you can find wonderful fair trade chocolate & coffee at Ten Thousand Villages.

Go gentle.
