    Fairtrade Fortnight - Zeddy deserves

    Tuesday, 26 February 2019  |  Joanna

    Zeddy used to get up super early to cut firewood for the stove.

    She has to set the stove, cook breakfast for her husband and children before getting on with tending her coffee plants.

    The co-operative where Zeddy sells her coffee used some of their Fairtrade premium to invest in biofuel stoves. These run on cow dung which is plentiful in Zeddy's rural village. The stoves are easy to light, produce much less harmful smoke and the byproduct can be used as fertiliser on the coffee plants. Zeddy says: 

    "I used to wake up early in the morning and fetch firewood first, so my children would get to school late and I would also go to my coffee farm late. But now, with the use of the stove, my children get to school very early in the morning and I also go to my coffee farm very early in the morning."
