Earlier this week our lifestyle blogger, Siel, reminded me that October is Fair Trade Month. She pointed us all to fairtrademonth.org for lots of ideas on how to support fair trade next month and throughout the year.

I’ve done a post on fair trade facts before, but I thought for those of you who are still wondering what it is and why it is important, this video would be helpful.

You go ahead and watch this while I sit back and sip my fair trade coffee.
