Black Friday alternative
It's that time of year again, when shoppers get all worked up at the thought of a pre-Christmas bargain. We've seen people being trampled and injured all for the sake of getting a cheap deal. Some might say our consumer attitude has got out of control. Thankfully, we are seeing a bit of a backlash to this with people in the States advocating a 'buy-nothing' day, where people should stop and think about over consumption and greed - and spend the day with their families instead.
We'd like to suggest that people use their desire to shop for the greater good. By buying fair trade you'll have none of the bad feelings associated with 'made in China' bargains, and you'll know that your thoughtful purchase is improving the life of the person who made it.
