Federico Hewson, Hidden Flowers

Most Americans aren’t aware that 70-80% of the flowers imported to the US are from Colombia where female flower workers earn $8 a day. Through his project Hidden Flowers, Federico Hewson is creatively sharing knowledge with information on Fairtrade which is a certification system that improves the lives of the workers on flower farms.
