Radio New Internationalist - Ethical Shopping Special

Put away your credit card. Get out your shopping trolley. This week’s program pays a visit to ethical shopping. New Internationalist editor, Jess Worth has just been hunting around the stores to find out whether ethical shopping is the magic bullet that can save the world, and bumps into some interesting ideas and people at the cash register:

  • Albert Tucker – who works with the Latin American Fair Trade Producers’ Network – debates Barbara Crowther, Head of Communications of Britain’s Fairtrade Foundation about how to best achieve fair trade – working within companies, or well away from them.
  • Helen Ireland drops into our airwaves to talk about Café Direct – a big company putting people before profit, proving that in the corporate world, you don’t have to sell out to make a profit.
  • Phil Stanton, a driving force behind the World Music Network, brings over some music samples and talks about the barriers and the benefits of a world economy for musicians in the Majority World.
