Santiago Rivera Tells His Story -Fair Trade Featured Series Day 5

Today is day five of a 14 day series on Fair Trade, leading up to Fair Trade Day on May 14th. For yesterday's post click the link: What Items Are Available as Fair Trade .

Today, let's watch a video.  Here, a coffee farmer in Nicaragua tells of how he switched to Fair Trading and why. The video does a great job of showing what a difference Fair Trade makes in the lives of producers and how it empowers. It also takes you through a day in the life of what it's like to produce coffee  (video is 6 minutes from YouTube). Click the link below:

Once you've had the chance to listen to Santiago's story, please stop back by and leave your comments. I'm enjoying your comments, and excited that those who are following are getting so much out of it!

Tomorrow we'll do the Top 10 Countdown of reasons why you should by Fair Trade. It won't be as exciting as David Letterman, but it will give you something to think about. 

Unveiling in video,
