Just popped in to the local mall and was surprised to find a stall selling 'fairtradey looking stuff.' When I stopped to talk to the young shop attendant I found out that she had decided to set up her own fairtrade initiative in Nepal. Through selling her gorgeous felt puppets and bags and bits'n'bobs she is currently supporting up to 100 women and as a consequence their families. It is truly inspiring how individuals see and then do. It makes my contribution to this issue seem small but it is important to do something. Check out the link. A really great fashion accessory (and lovely puppets for anyone about to buy kids Christmas presents).
