Who We Are and What We Believe In

October 02, 2015

"What does it mean to create change with your everyday choices? We believe that something as simple as the coffee you drink has an effect on the planet and our global community, and you have the power to make that effect a positive one." 

The above is written by our good friends over at Equal Exchange who produced this excellent new video, called "Who We Are and What We Believe In," that we thought you'd like to see and share. As with all of the values-driven producers we collaborate with, it's the stories of impact on lives behind the product that makes our work so vital. In three quick minutes you'll learn quite a bit about the power your purchases of fairly traded coffee, tea, and chocolate make in the lives of small farmers.
