Before you put in that next order for a cheap, convenient, tax-free purchase, please consider this:
If the working conditions described in these articles trouble you, remember that we as consumers have the power to make a difference. Those of us who choose to pay a bit more for free-range chicken eggs or certified humane dairy products, or who buy fair trade products from abroad, are exercising that power. We respectfully ask you to consider doing the same with your other purchasing decisions, and patronizing independent bookstores as well.
Please pass this along to your friends and colleagues. Sorayya Carr, Partner and Manager
