    I always find it fascinating to see companies go outside the norm and take risks based on what is right. Here it's fair trade and valuing employees. What I like to see is this quote "the measure of Alter Eco’s success can also be counted in Bolivian farmers who have reinvested their earnings in training other farmers to grow quinoa organically and in a way that regenerates the soil." At the beginning we look at fair trade itself as the problem to solve, yet now we get to see the ripple affect of other problems being solved and changes these leading companies are making. I love it. This is great to read. Looking forward to more in the series.
