“Before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half the world”– Martin Luther King
As always, Martin Luther King’s words could not ring more true and they encourage us to really consider the impact that the rest of the world can have on the products we use day to day. It’s something that many of us often forget to think about. As a result, millions of people all around the world are not compensated fairly for their work and contributions to the creation of products. In the Western world we are often far removed from the process that goes into every day product, and as such, it is all too easy for us to turn a blind eye to those who are being treated unfairly. Fairtrade month aims to combat this and promote fairness, compensation, and community development.
Fairtrade month and World Fairtrade Day are the time of year where leaders, businesses, schools, and many others celebrate everything fair trade. When you choose products marked with the Fairtrade mark, you are choosing to support companies who work with farmers in the Global South so that their communities can grow and develop. This is a cause that we at Cambrian are thrilled to support.
