Guest 3.  Julie Kawahara discusses how she made her choices for Fair Trade and eventually became the new owner of Kindred Fair Trade Handcrafts.  She talks about the certication process in assuring the artisans are compensated fairly for their work.  The movement has spread to foods, and chocolate is the main concern because of widespread us of child slavery in its production.  Look for the labels indicating Fair Trade!
