Did you know that October is National Fair Trade Month? If you are not aware of what Fair Trade means, you are not alone. I am still learning, too! Basically, Fair Trade practices ensure that coffee farmers get a fair price for their beans allowing them to grow their businesses and invest in their futures.
For more than a decade, Green Mountain Coffee has been a leader in the fair trade movement not only bringing you a great cup of coffee but improving the lives of the farmers that supply the product. In celebration of Fair Trade Month, Green Mountain Coffee in partnership with two musicians, Grace Potter and Michael Franti, began the “Great Coffee, Good Vibes, Pass It On” campaign. They traveled to Sumatra and Columbia to see first hand the effects of fair trade practices. Through a series of free concerts, the initiative celebrates the good vibes of fair trade and even an opportunity to win a trip to Costa Rica.
With the arrival of Fall, I am happy to announce that I am giving away a new, bright orange Keurig® Mini Plus Brewing System and a box of Fair Trade Certified™ Pumpkin Spice! Plus, if you would like to try the fair trade products, use the code GMCFTC8155 to receive 10% off your order (expires November 5). Enter below!
