Do you find it difficult to shop ethically?
Most of us have good intentions. My intention to start the morning with exercise is a great one but I rarely do it. It’s easy to be put off doing something different because it’s different or because we think it might be too hard.
When it comes to making a difference in more ways than one ethical shopping is probably on your good intentions agenda. Are you worried it’ll more expensive, harder to find and that the fair trade coffee is still as awful as it was in the nineties. It’s not.
A friend of mine’s little girl Stella was asked to do some homework and find a fair trade product in her local supermarket. Cue me feeling warm and fuzzy that little people are being encouraged to shop ethically – awesome!
Stella who is only 4 years old enlightened her teacher by explaining that Malteasers are fair trade. I believe the response from the teacher was something like “Eeee I didn’t know that!”
So here is my first round up of 5 fantastic products that can be found easily, ethically and are fairly traded.
