I found this video starring Chris Martin of Cold Play about Fair Trade. I'll admit I got choked up while watching it. Its two years old, so if you visit the website at the end of the video you will be redirected. So, here's the real link. When you get there, check out the interactive diagram. Its a unique way of showing how the current (unfair) trade system works.
Remember you can make a difference just in what you buy.
P.S. The volume on this is low, so turn it up.

What if... We Made Trade Fair?
I'm a Master Naturalist and an outdoor enthusiast -- mostly kayaking, and I live on a Peninsula in the Chesapeake Bay. I'm the author of The Nature Fan, Nature Fan Activists, Green Earth Almanac, and Amanda's Geographic. Formerly, I ran the nationally syndicated column "National Green Activism" for The Examiner, and I was a key factor in the success of many campaigns.
