Fair trade and your morning jolt
fair trade, sustainability and social consciousness are all top of mind right now - and thankfully so. we are in an exciting time period and one that necessitates awareness and action. things like this movie further add to that momentum. and while facing down global warming is daunting, it's not that hard to make an impact in your own corner of the world...could be as simple as walking across the street to hit up a coffee shop that serves fair trade instead of the regular stuff. or buying your home brew from a retailer featuring a selection of organic, fair trade beans. or simply watching this movie and thinking about the issue.
doing nothing is a lot harder than doing something. big or small, you'll feel better about your impact on your world. one very practical way to impact your world is buy changing your purchasing decisions. there are a ton of better options out there...one place i'm diggin' is two hands worldshop. they have some great fair-trade goods with the convenience of online shopping. one little change, one little purchasing decision and you've made a difference.
