The everyday products that could be ‘endangered’ due to climate change

Everyday products could be at risk of becoming “endangered” due to climate change, a non-profit organisation has warned.

Fairtrade Foundation set up a pop-up shop in Shoreditch, east London, to highlight how everyday essentials - such as bananas, chocolate, and coffee - could be increasingly scarce in the future due to rising temperatures, more extreme weather, loss of biodiversity and the use of pesticides.

The non-profit says that Fairtrade cocoa farmers in Ghana have told them that they “don’t see a future in the crop because it’s so difficult to grow.”
