Happy Sunday! I’m pleased to share with you the first of a new weekly feature here on One Fair Day.
In the three years since I first started writing One Fair Day, there’s been a huge shift in the demand for ethically sourced products – and the world of ethical and sustainable consumerism is increasingly on people’s radars. So much so, that I’m looking forward to sharing with you a weekly round up of great articles, new and old, on all things sustainable. Grab a cup of Fairtrade coffee, sit back, enjoy – and maybe learn something new!
