Be The Change“Every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.” – Albert Einstein

On a daily basis we are faced with so many choices. With so much to consider from the time we wake up to the time we go to bed, it's easy to get overwhelmed.

The Fair Living Blog aims to be a source of relief and solution to the information overload.  Our team is ready to help you along the way by sharing useful tips for living life in a more sustainable and equitable manner.  

It's possible to change daily habits making an impact in the lives of others.  This creates a ripple effect of positive action and inspiration.  At Moyaa, we believe in Thinking Global and Acting Local.  We are all in this together, and helping each other is what community is all about.  

Did you know that more than 2.5 billion people live on less than $2.00 a day?  

Many of the people that labour to make our clothing and grow our food, make less than $0.11 an hour.  They are often faced with unsafe working conditions, no health care and few education opportunities.

Unfortunately much of the world is largely unaware of the challenges people face.  This trend cannot continue.  With advancement in technology, more solutions are becoming available as well as more awareness.

Information sharing is one of the greatest ways to educate each other about the success stories and challenges that occur on a daily basis across the globe.

We need to take action. Whatever we can, however small. Supporting fair trade and organic are two great ways to make a positive impact when voting with your dollar.
