so, completely random, but most of the good sites were already mentioned that talk about fair trade.
but i know of 2 local stores where you can buy fair trade products, Rose's and Espresso Legato in downtown Bowmanville.
at rose's it has fair trade tea, chocolate and coffee, and quite possibly more stuff that i just don't know about, and at espresso, i know for sure that they sell fair trade coffee.
just throwin that out there!
