Yay!! The fair trade stuff is really important.

I have found some really good fair trade products. They are harder to get, but worth every cent to know that people are being paid a fair wage for a fair day’s work.

We wouldn’t tolerate exploitation of workers in our own country. It’s time to insist that our companies are not allowed to exploit workers in other nations.

I don’t want little kids being sold into slavery to make my coffee and chocolate or to work in some brothel. I want them to go to school and be able to play and feel loved.

This is something simple we can all do that would make a huge difference.

Oh, and Canberra should be the first fair trade city! We should be leading the country in this.

I hope lots of people will go along and support the launch. Things like this are always so interesting. You learn so much!
