Back with a bang tonight after the half term break. We ran two quizzes for the games section, one of which was general knowledge and the other a visual quiz where teams had to identify car makes and models from pictures with certain bits blocked out.
Sam took the talk tonight and focused on Fairtrade products. He had some shocking statistics as to the numbers of people in abject poverty who are exploited to supply some of the things that we take for granted. He spoke about Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance products which give a fair wage to the people who actually produce the goods. At the end some signed a pledge not to buy any chocolate or coffee this week that isn’t either Fairtrade or certified by the Rainforest Alliance, it may not be much but it is a start.
Once home I made straight for the cupboard to check the coffee that I usually drink, thankfully there was the logo on the label.
