Valentines Day approaches

Valentines day. I could say it is a cynical act in companies charging you more money for goods you can buy cheaper at other times of the year. And of course if you don’t buy something, well, how unromantic of you!
But wait.
Valentines day is a moment where we can not only show care for the ones we love, but also the producers of the items we buy.
Take flowers for example. Here in the UK the fair trade foundation’s new and improved site not only makes it easier to find flowers, but food, mens clothes… all sorts of things.
And all you lovely people the other side of the pond are not left high and dry, you can buy flowers as well as a whole bunch of of ther amazing things from transfair USA including Ben and Jerry’s ice cream!
So heres to Valentines day and here’s to spreading the love.
