My Neighbor And Me sells fair trade products from Gambia, Guatemala, and Peru, as
well as products from the local community.
Have you ever become angry at something that made your blood boil not because it directly affected you but because it was harming someone else?
A core foundation of the fair trade relationship is justice.
As I prepare to leave in a few days to visit my brother-in-law, James, in Kenya, I will be pondering the effects of the fair trading relationship with artisan groups in Africa. As I ponder, I plan to work on completing the application to become a certified fair trade retailer with the Fair Trade Federation.
My thoughts on the importance of justice will continue to be shaped and molded.
