October is National Fair Trade Month
The theme this month at Green Mountain Coffee is Fair Trade, since October is National Fair Trade Month. Since GMCR is the world’s largest buyer of Fair Trade Certified™ coffee, they’re the perfect company to remind everyone of just how important Fair Trade is!
What is Fair Trade Certified?
Fair Trade is a standard certified by an independent third-party non-profit organization which ensures that the products are made in an ethical manner. Included Fair Trade items are things like fruits and veggies, spices, clothing, coffee, tea, and ingredients which go into everyday products.
In the case of our favorite coffees, this means that the farmers who grow it get a fair price and invest the Fair Trade premiums back into their communities and schools. The workers must be treated fairly, with a safe work environment and no forced slave or child labor to grow the crops. This also means that all Fair Trade Certified™ products are not genetically modified (non-GMO).
You can get more info on Fair Trade from Fair Trade USA.
Great Coffee, Good Vibes, Pass it On
This month, Green Mountain Coffee celebrated the Great Coffee, Good Vibes, Pass it On campaign to get everybody on board with buying Fair Trade Certified products!
They sent musicians Michael Franti and Grace Potter to countries where they could meet and interact with these farming families that benefit so much when we buy Fair Trade Certified™.
Also in my green Mountain Coffee box were 3 Fair Trade Certified varieties of K-Cups packs, including:
Colombian Fair Trade Select K-Cups
Fair Trade Sumatran Reserve K-Cups
and Pumpkin Spice K-Cups.
