Health + Injustice + Community
These are the tenets we have been discussing and agitating about as long as our human brains have been capable of complex thinking. These are the same issues that are central to Fair Trade Issues.
As our global world gets figuratively smaller and once-far-away countries are a short shipment away, the living conditions of those who make the goods we buy become more visible.
Fair Trade workers are safer and more empowered. The production process is more sustainable. Fair Trade is better for those making and receiving the goods and for the planet as a whole.
Please help me by supporting Fair Trade Los Angeles. This local non-profit is educating and empowering locals to become more aware of the benefits of buying Fair Trade and helping to make the goods that follow these principles more readily available to them.
Thank you and stay safe out there!
