We Auzzies Love a Fair Go. Lets Go Fairtrade

Lets Give Fairtrade a Fair Go!

Living in Australia, we are blessed with endless opportunities. We are taught that if you work hard and work smart in life, success will not be far behind.

Less can be said about third world or war torn countries such as Africa, or developing countries such as India. Education is scarce, food is minimal…… but cheap labour is plenty.

So as business owners, we must be thinking – how do we exploit and discriminate to make an extra buck for our wallets. Simple! We give them a poor working environment and we pay them close to nothing for their hard labour, milking all their life and energy.

Is this injustice? Off course it is! They are born into an environment where they will never get the chance of proper education or to excel in their field of work. So is greater justice in this world possible? How can businesses be successful yet also put its people and workers first?

That’s where the heroes of the Fairtrade organization comes in.
