A sleepy dreamy morning. Not a breath of wind. Too lazy to fill the feeders again, a handful is sprinkled on the garden table. Let me get my breakfast first little friends!
And still they come, their feathers a little askew. Cautious but alert and a few sleepyheads. First things first, a cup of delicious coffee and some pictures of the guzzling Bluetits.
Meanwhile in San Jose, Costa Rica, Gerardo Arias Camacho will set out for a day in the fields. He will earn a fair basic wage thanks to a world wide movement called Fairtrade. It's Fairtrade Fortnight at the moment, how far would you go to ensure the sustainable future of businesses like his?
Probably like me you won't even have to leave your kitchen. Won't have to push a wheelbarrow load of coffee across a mountain to avoid coffee sharks. Won't have to spend the day picking, washing and processing the beans, rain, hail or shine.
Just check out your cuppa, make it a Faritrade one, and throw your weight behind a fairer solution.
