Today we decided to show you two little things we thought are cool in England. I chose this one. It's a fair trade avocado. If you've heard of fair trade it probably has to do with coffee. The idea is that fairly traded coffee means the growers — usually small farmers in poor countries — got a fair price for their coffee. What I thought was cool is that all over Europe you see "Fair Trade" labels: it's not just about coffee. It could be anything — even milk bought from local farmers. Most of the big, English supermarkets compete with each other by being greener than the others. I love that. I wish we'd see that in the regular supermarkets here.
