I never knew what Fair Trade meant before starting this campaign and through it ALREADY I have learned a few different facts. Excited to learn more when I get my bzzkit!
– Fair Trade supports farmers. Green mountain buys directly from the farmers and avoids middlemen who can take advantage of them.
– Fair Trade protects the environment. Farmers are held to higher standards in the use of chemicals and pesticides.
– Working Conditions are better. Fair trade communities must adhere to strict labor laws that don’t otherwise exist in the areas where coffee is grown.
Grace Potter and Michael Franti will be playing in support of Free Trade and you can check out the live stream of their concerts on Green Mountain Coffee’s Facebook Page!
