Each day we make what may seem to us like small decisions – Where should I grab a coffee? What kind of tea should I get for my book club meet-up? Which chocolate bar will I treat myself to?
But these small decisions are inextricably linked to the livelihoods of other fellow human beings. That latte may have been made possible by a farmer in Honduras who has been harvesting coffee for generations. Or maybe the tea you served at book club was picked by a woman who is struggling to put her child through school. What may be small, everyday decisions to us can have a big impact on the lives of farmers and workers in the Global South.
This Fairtrade Month, we’re asking you to remember the connection we have to the people who make the things we love. We’re asking you to #FeedEmpowerment by making Fairtrade part of your everyday.
