I bought some bananas today.
My wife had done some shopping earlier but had forgotten fruit. I was sent out to get some. I didn’t think twice about whether to get Fair Trade, I believe in thoughtful, responsible buying. Since then I have been wondering how far we should take this.
There is an internet campaign going to encourage people to boycott Trend Micro. Is this too a Fair Trade thing? It is a bit more complicated than bananas. Free or opensource software is one thing that can empower poor countries and their education systems.
But as I said, how far do we take this?
