A Cry for Change!

A Cry for Change!
After weeks of eager anticipation, yesterday’s unveiling of Pope Francis’ Encyclical on Climate Change has finally arrived: in newspapers, social media, television and radio, the world is abuzz with his message: it is time that the conversation about economic inequality and the devastation of our planet be treated as one struggle. The roots of these injustices are the same and the way out of the crisis is the same: a sustainable economy that places people and the planet before greed and the reckless pursuit of profit.

Happy (Belated) Anniversary Equal Exchange!

Small Farmers, Big Change
May 15, 2015

On May 1st Equal Exchange turned 29!
We celebrate our anniversary by holding an annual meeting where we discuss the state of our business and our co-operative, among other items.   And of course, as important as that meeting is, it doesn’t hold a candle to the festivities that we engage in later that evening. : )
This year, I was in Panama, attending the Fourth Annual Gathering of the Small Producer Symbol (SPP) and couldn’t make it back in time for the activities.
