Spreading the Dripping Springs Way
We baked with a friend over the holidays and she was using fair trade sugar. This is the brown crystal sugar that you see at many restaurants if you aren't familiar with it. It isn't as refined as white sugar and can be used in any recipe just like white sugar. Best of all, it's made by people who are paid a fair wage. We had been buying charming hand-made products and coffee that are fair trade, but now we are thinking about everything we purchase. We just ran across a site that is owned by ebay -- WorldOfGood.com. World of Good sells eco-friendly products made by artisans all over the world -- the site ensures that the products are made by people who are paid fairly for their products. Empowering talented people and conserving our valuable resources seems very Dripping Springs to us. For cool things about Dripping Springs, Texas, please visit http://www.drippingspringslife.com/.
