Fairtrade gives a crap about climate change.

Why are we so excited about dung? Farmers in Kenya and turning it into CLEAN energy.

As part of the Women in Coffee project being implemented by Fairtrade Africa, with funding for the Big Lottery Fund, farmers like Zeddy are benefiting from green energy BioGas stoves constructed...
