October is National Fair Trade Month - Did you know that for more than a decade, Green Mountain Coffee® has been a leader in the fair trade movement, providing a better cup of coffee to consumers and a better quality of life for coffee farmers?
Fair Trade means coffee farmers get a fair price for their beans they grow. That means they can invest in crops, their communities, and their futures.
During the month of October Green Mountain Coffee and acclaimed musicians Grace Potter and Michael Franti are celebrating in a big way with “Great Coffee, Good Vibes, Pass It On” – an awareness campaign that celebrates the good vibes of fair trade through free concerts and an opportunity to win a trip to source. As part of the campaign, Grace and Michael were invited to Colombia and Sumatra respectively, to get a first-hand look at how Fair Trade makes a difference in the lives of coffee farmers – and in the coffee you’re drinking.
This month as a K-Cup® Ambassador I was sent two Fair Trade Certified™ coffees from the regions Grace and Michael visited – Colombian Fair Trade Select and Fair Trade Sumatran Reserve – as well as Pumpkin Spice, a delicious seasonal flavor that is also Fair Trade Certified™. And yes my coffee loving family is enjoying every cup of their fall flavors.
You can learn more about Grace and Michael’s trips at Facebook.com/GreenMountainCoffee, where you can also enter to win a trip to Costa Rica, one of the many locations where Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade Certified™ coffee is grown. Be sure to check out their videos as well.
