Can't We All Just Trade Fairly?

I was in the village this noon to buy a birthday card and my "fairly traded" senses were tingling. I noticed Equal Exchange Organic Chocolate Bars with Ground Hazelnuts on the counter so I couldn't resist. The farmers represented by my cocoa indulgence today were from the Dominican Republic and/or Peru. Even the organic sugar used in the bars comes from fairly traded farmers from Paraguay and Costa Rica.

They have a retail web store where you can buy organic coffee, tea, chocolate, cocoa and cane sugar. In other words, all the stuff you need for basic human survival.
