Inspired by President-elect Obama’s campaign for “change we can believe in,” Change.org is running a campaign of ideas for Obama to implement once in the White House. As owner of a fair trade company, naturally my vote goes for the idea to “Declare The White House A Fair Trade Zone.” That would mean serving fair trade coffees and teas at official functions, using fair trade chocolate in desserts and generally giving fair trade the highest profile yet. For a president-elect with social issues at the top of his agenda, this idea doesn’t seem far-fetched at all. Register your vote through tomorrow, Jan. 15th at 5pm ET.
