This iReport is part of an assignment:
Fair-trade chocolate challenge
Fair Trade Birthday Cake
- dsashin, CNN iReport producer
Fortunately, I live in San Francisco, a very 'global' city, and there are some stores around that I had seen carry Fair trade items. I was at the grocery store by my house, and almost reached for some sugar without this label (because I was in a hurry), but I thought about this challenge and I decided to walk to the other grocery store so I could buy sugar with the Fair Trade Certified label on it. Yes, it was 7 blocks away and I was tired and in a hurry, but I was glad I had this blog to hold me accountable.
And it made me smile a little, because now that I have been exposed to what simple product decisions can have a big impact, I decided to go the extra distance for the product...and I sure hope you will too.
The birthday girl made me laugh because she said, "This cake is guilt-free!" It was absolutely delicious and I enjoyed every single bite!
