We’ve all seen goods on store shelves that claim to be the product of ‘fair trade.’ Among other things, this means the goods weren’t produced in sweatshops, the producers are making a decent wage and the goods are produced in an environmentally-friendly way. But are consumers getting good value when they buy fair-traded items? What if those items cost more than similar goods; what's the value in that? We'll examine the fair trade market in Northeast Ohio and discuss whether fair trade is an ideal worth pursuing, tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. on the Sound of Ideas.
