Fair Trade

Monday, September 1, 2008
Fair Trade

So you love your new hand knit sweater from Guatemala; and it only cost $50. Your favorite coffee is from Kenya at $14 per pound. As you sit there all toasty in your new sweater sipping coffee, have you ever wondered how your products got to the store? And where does the money go? Do the knitters or coffee growers make enough to live on? All of these questions and more are part of the fair trade movement. Making sure the artisans and farmers are paid a fair wage for their product. But is it working or is it just a marketing tool to make us feel better? Join us on Monday for an archive show about Fair Trade. We won't be taking calls this hour.
