Nine Minutes of Fair Trade Education

I'm technically on a three day vacation, heading to Minneapolis (home of Peace Coffee!) to run/walk a half-marathon tomorrow.    A goal of mine was to blog before I left... here I go.  I am taking a bit of a short-cut, though, just sharing a video I recently found on YouTube.  Called "Fair Trade: the Movie" it is a quick introduction to Fair Trade Certified food, with testimonials from farmers, businesses and advocates, including students in Seattle, a city I recently became very enamored of.   Although this story of Fair Trade misses out on the artisan sector, I found it a pretty useful intro and hope you enjoy.  Of course, if you have other videos to recommend, comment away!
