During the month of October, Equal Exchange will donate $.25 (up to $15,000) to tea farmers in Darjeeling, India for each Equal Exchange item sold in co-ops! This money will go to the Potong tea community to help them plant new tea bushes and support their unique worker-owned business model! In tea, this model is highly unusual, as Fair Trade tea often comes from large estates where workers are legally bound from one generation to the next.
- Want to know more? Fix yourself a steaming cup of Fair Trade tea (or Fair Trade hot chocolate or coffee) and enjoy reading an interesting article: Transforming the Tea Industry: From Plantations to a Small Farmer Model. Don’t forget to include a wholesome snack like a Fair Trade organic banana, also from our friends at Equal Exchange!
Equal Exchange isn’t the only company with Fair Trade products. Check out the colorful socks and other cotton apparel from Maggies Functional Organics. Or how about an unusually shaped and exotic tasting raw chocolate bar from Fearless Chocolate!
