    Happy, Healthy, and Ecologically Wise With Fair Trade USA

    in Moms and Family

    I was watching The Ellen Degeneras Show, an episode of Child Inventors http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvzRjJbkjo8&playnext=1&list=PL1563FE59EA812C4C
    The first few minutes of this video show introduce 7 year old Meagan and her invention of the Equal Size Cake Cutter. She was very clear about the misery of being at a party where someone gets a big piece of cake while you get a little piece of cake…It’s Not Fair.I sure remember growing up with 2 brothers and how those 3 words easily flew around the house almost daily. My parents use to say the world is not fair.This world is a great display of the Have’s and the Have-not’s. There’s a lot of suffering in the world because the Have-not’s don’t get paid fair wages for labor. Thank goodness there have been many individuals and organizations in history that attempted to re-balance the world.
    Fair Trade www.fairtradeusa.org @fairtradeusa has taken center stage…On the Jimmy Fallon show @JimmyFallon, when Ben & Jerry of THE one and only Ben & Jerry’s www.benjerry.com promoted Fair Trade. Ben & Jerry dedicated a new flavor to Jimmy Fallon, “Late Night Snack” which includes 2 Fair Trade ingredients, vanilla and cocoa. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2itk1dAZTHw&feature=related
