Coffins, Cats and Fair Trade Sex Toys

by Jeremy Piercy
£8.99   paperback  Quick Brown Fox Publications (2009)

Coffins, Cats and Fair Trade Sex Toys by Jeremy Piercy Most people agree that fair trade is A Good Thing, but don't know much about it. What's it all about? How did it get so big? Are global warming and other environmental problems more important?
 
This is not an academic book. It's about the people who got fair trade off the ground, and the people who are helping it to grow today - in all parts of the world.
Jeremy Piercy is uniquely qualified to be our guide as we delve into the world of fair trade. As the founder of Shared Earth, he has hitch-hiked to India and braved roast guinea pig, all to see the idea of fair trade grow to become a success.
 
Can Nepalese sex workers escape and find a normal life? Can New Delhi streetkids become graphic designers?
 
Fair Trade says 'yes!'
It can even help to save the environment!
 
Jeremy Piercy founded Shared Earth in 1986. Find out how he got involved in fair trade, how the business grew and how fair trade is still growing today. Join him for a tour of a world we don't know about, a quirky world of coffins, cats and yes - even sex toys!

"It's rare to find a book about a 'serious issue' that it well-written, informative and amusing, but Jeremy's managed it without sermonising."
(Antony Worral Thompson)
