Did you know that it is Fair Trade Month? Do you even know what that is? If you don’t, you aren’t alone. Only about one in three consumers is aware of what fair trade is all about. It is amazing that simple purchasing decisions can help improve the lives of people around the world.
To celebrate, Green Mountain Coffee and musicians Grace Potter and Michael Franti have partnered in the “Great Coffee, Good Vibes, Pass It On,” campaign which was created to bring awareness for fair trade and the positive impact it has on farmers internationally. The Green Mountain Coffee brand offers one of the largest selections of Fair Trade Certified™ coffees in the United States!
Earlier this year, Potter and Franti visited fair trade farms in Colombia and Sumatra, where they saw firsthand how fair trade positively impacts the lives of farmers and their families. Here is a video to give you a glimpse into Grace’s trip.
To “raise the volume” so to speak on fair trade, Potter and Franti will each give exclusive, solo, live streamed performances on the Green Mountain Coffee Facebook Page. Grace has already performed from New York on October 9th and Michael will perform TODAY, October 24th from Los Angeles.
Besides being a supporter of fair trade, I’m a huge supporter of coffee in general. I honestly don’t know how I would function in the morning without my coffee. It helps me to start my day off right. I find it comforting, even if my morning is hectic and anything but peaceful. Thankfully my Keurig helps me get it started even faster with a freshly brewed cup wrapped around my fingers in no time.
Green Mountain Coffee has a great selection of K-cups, including my very favorite flavors. I can’t wait to try out the limited edition pumpkin spice!
Be sure to visit the Green Mountain Facebook page where you can see exclusive photos and videos from the trips, and even enter to win a trip of your own to Costa Rica! Don’t forget to check out the live performances as well!
During the month of October only, get $2 off Green Mountain Fair Trade Coffee!
