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.

Jerry:
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.

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

Jerry:
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.
