The Brigidine Congregational Forum 2016 called us to commit to purchasing fair trade and other products which promote social and environmental well being. How much attention do we pay to the food chain from farms to our table? What items on our shopping list are sourced from ethical or organic suppliers, lessening our impact on the planet and assuring workers who produce our food get a fair share of the profit? Does the coffee or tea we drink carry a fair trade label or come from justice-promoting organizations?
