Tamara Johnston, the subject of the 2008 documentary The Fair Trade, is interviewed in this article from AsiaSpa magazine. The article describes the events that led to Tamara’s decision to start Anti-Body, a fair-trade skincare business, with her twin sister Shelby and Shelby’s husband Steve, as well as the values that shape their business and their hope to change the world:
Tamara says her own experience around death is that it has taught her how to find meaning in the time she has here. “It has taught me not to sweat the trivialities so much and it continues to teach me that life can be good. What a blessing to come out of so much pain. With death comes life. It is as natural as birth yet, we live in a culture that avoids talking about it seriously. I hope that by being open about it, I encourage others to find freedom in doing the same.”
Awesome, Tamara. Thanks for sharing your journey with us!
