Your Purchases Count Twice

April 30, 2015

By choosing fair-trade food from Equal Exchange, you enable small-scale farmers to support themselves, their families, and their communities. And by purchasing fairly traded products through the Good Buy, you are directly supporting the Small Farmer Fund. Last year, community groups and congregations from many faiths throughout the United States purchased over 763,000 pounds of fairly traded goods from Equal Exchange. As a result, Equal Exchange contributed over $110,000 to partner organizations to improve the lives of small farmers worldwide.
