Hungry for Change
February 1, 2011
People have been asking me what they can do to fight human trafficking and to make better choices as they buy. I’m going to be writing about that subject a lot in the coming year. For today, I wanted to let you know about a program run by Trade as One that I signed up for yesterday. It’s called Hungry for Change. Think of it as a CSA- except for instead of produce, it’s Fair Trade consumables shipped to your house. Each month, they send you a box of Fair Trade food. One of the things that I love about this program is that for a $2 shipping fee, plus the cost of the items, they will add in any items that you would like. For my coffee loving friends, you can add-on a sort of coffee club to get Fair Trade coffee shipped to your house each month, along with your other consumables. This is an easy, sustainable way to incorporate Fair Trade items into your ongoing shopping for food each month.
I’ve probably said it some where before, but I have no affiliation with Trade as One. But, I do believe in what they’re doing, and I want to see them thrive. Nathan George has given sacrificially of his heart, soul and wallet to get this business going. He and his team are working to be an agent of change for giving the poor in the developing world a way to make a living wage.
