Jenna Burris took the words out of my mouth. Thinking of putting shoes on my child that another’s hands made, and that the child making them possibly doesn’t even have a pair of shoes them self, is sickening and saddening.

I really don’t know much about these companies. From I gather they are children free and fair to their employees and I stand behind that. More companies need to be like that.

I love to support fair trade companies. I never buy from companies such as Walmart, even though their prices are usually unbeatable. I cannot stand the thought of child labor or people getting paid pennies for what they do. I don’t even enter into giveaways that are for Walmart giftcards! Awesome giveaway!

I’ve never thought about fair trade until recently. Now, I would like to promote fair trade products because it’s ethical, moral, and humane. We do so much to protect the environment, animals, children, and many more causes, workers need just as much support.
