New business model on Mass.: Local stores hope to make 'positive change in the world' by selling fair trade

“Fair trade” is not a brand name; rather, it is an adjective that expresses fair business practices between buyer and seller, and speaks to sustainability of the Earth.

Deb Rukes is doing a great job at her little shop, Kretyen Fair Trade Gifts & Coffee. She has been committed to spreading the word about fair trade for nearly three years now. She is a compassionate woman who has devoted her life to simply help others any way that she can. If you have never been to this locally owned store, I would suggest stopping by sometime. It's a great shopping experience. Thanks j-w for giving her due recognition.
