Marion Wood and Jim Kebbell were at the heart of Trade Aid Wellington's beginning years.
- In their words;
"Commonsense Organics has very close ties to the fair trade movement in New Zealand. The first Trade Aid store in Wellington was started in 1974 by Commonsense co-founders Jim Kebbell and Marion Wood. The store was called Every Little Body and was upstairs in the Resistance Bookshop - on Christmas Eve the store sold a whopping $90 worth of fair trade goods. The Trade Aid stores that we know today look very different, but the goal is still the same - to make a difference in the world through the promotion of socially conscious shopping and fair trade. "
