Questions asked from the website

“I’m concerned that, as the issue of slavery and human trafficking becomes more visible and even “trendy,” there may be unscrupulous organizations that spring up. For example, I would like to buy products that are made without slave labor but I am skeptical of the slick websites and packaging of some of the recommended companies. Coffee is one product that seems to have a lot of companies using the fair trade label. “Organic” does not always mean what it implies, so I wonder if the coffee people are wiggling around within the designation of “fair trade” too. Do you have any thoughts on how we can be just and WISE too?”  Ellen

MY REPLY:

I so appreciate your question! Most folks just assume “Fair trade” and “Free Trade” mean slave free – but that’s not always the case.

I do have some specific suggestions.
