In celebration of Fair Trade month, we want to help educate our readers about the importance of Fair Trade coffee. Fair trade coffee literally changes the conditions of many lives, as coffee farmers are paid fairly for their coffee. Since this is Fair Trade Coffee month, we though this is the ideal time for retailers, brands and ethically-minded consumers to join together for generating a global impact of Fair Trade. Here are some things to consider joining forces with so many others that buy Fair Trade.
Tiki Hut Coffee offers a wide variety of fair trade coffee, including fair trade k-cups and locally roasted gourmet coffee. Some of our most popular products are fair trade certified, such as Green Mountain Nantucket Blend k-cups, Green Mountain Pumpkin Spice k-cups, Newman’s Own Organics k-cups, and Bigelow English Breakfast Tea k-cups to name a few. We’re also one of the only online coffee services that carries third wave coffee from local roasters like Irving Farm and MUD Coffee, who are both praised for their sustainability and ethical standards.
Fair Trade is available for so much more than just coffee. You can find fair trade products that include, fruits, vegetables, outerwear, denim, footwear and so much more. When considering all the items available through Fair Trade, it makes it simple to add ethically-conscious purchasing practices to your daily routine.
Recent data shows that Fair Trade produce imported to the United States hit an all-time high in 2014, by increasing to 26% in response to rising consumer demand for ethically-sourced products, according to the Department of Agriculture. This means that big corporate retailers such as, Whole Foods, Costco, Sam’s Club and Haggen now offer over 25 Fair Trade Certified fruits and vegetables.
