A TALE OF TWO VEHICLES
The moped of a Thai rubber tapper is parked after the owner has delivered his daily rubber harvest. If the makers of the car and tyre of the vehicle in the background would pay the Fair Trade premium set by the FRA – the price of that car would increase by approx. EUR 6. Chances of this happening are about as slim as are the chances of a rubber tapper ever being able to buy a car – any car.
