Morning has come hot and sunny here in the Dominican Republic. Nonetheless, we're tucking ourselves into the hotel conference room for a Fair Trade 101 presentation with Ben & Jerry's and the "Do the World a Flavor" contest finalists.

Thanks to our Fair Trade colleagues from Max Haavelar France for producing this great video: Conacado Impact Video
