Fair Trade Shopping Guide

World Bank Blog

Did you know that the World Bank has been blogging since February 2006?

The Private Sector Development Blog (PSD Blog) gathers together news, resources and ideas about the role of private enterprise in fighting poverty.

The PSD Blog is maintained by the World Bank Group’s Rapid Response knowledge service, which specializes in policy advice on business environment reform and privatization policy in developing countries.

Thanks to the PSD team for flagging Ten Thousand Villages in their fair trade holiday shopping guide.

New sites that I’ve gleaned from the list include Taraluna (organic, green gifts), Cred Jewellery (fair trade wedding rings), and Novica (an online arts agent, in association with National Geographic, for more than 2,000 artists).

I’ve subscribed to their RSS feed.
