The Future of Fair Trade

As Fair Trade Month approaches, we'd like to share a podcast from one of our favorite media outlets: UTNE magazine. In this episode, host Leif Utne discusses the future of the Fair Trade movement with a representative from TransfairUSA and two fair trade companies that are pushing the movement in new directions — Ok√© USA, which imports Fair Trade fruit, and Fair Trade Sports, which imports soccer, volleyball, rugby and other sports balls.

Better World Cup

Plus, how green is your city? Leif interviews Warren Karlenzig, chief strategy officer at SustainLane and lead author of the recent book How Green Is Your City? for his list of the top 10 greenest cities in The United States. The answers may surprise you.
