Not exactly crap.
It means the farmers in the third world will actually get paid a decent wage. All us rich kids have to do is pay a few more cents for things like tea, chocolate or bananas and we're improving the standard of living in poorer places. I think it's a great idea, one of our supermarket chains has gotten big into ethical banking and fair trade. It's a step in the right direction.
