The price you pay ...

Chris in Stoke:

Why should people be paying for the faults of capitalism and big business like pollution and exploitation? The consumers did not cause these.

I think people should pressure corporations to provide good products at reasonable prices, while paying their suppliers wages that do not exploit small farmers in developing countries.

But don't ethical products tend to be more expensive - because you pay more to farmers?

If we want to have sustainable economies with farmers that pay in business we need to pay them a livable wage and products that are affordable to customers.
