July 13, 2007, Newsletter Issue #117: Socially Responsible Coffee Gift Basket

Tip of the Week

Your gift can delight your loved one and also support coffee farms and coffee-growing regions by choosing organic and fair trade products for your coffee basket. Fair trade is about fair price for farmers, fair labor conditions for farm workers, community development in coffee growing nations and environmental sustainability. Start with organic or fair-trade beans, grounds or K-Cup coffees. To ensure that your coffee gift baskets meet these standards, look for a label indicating that it is certified.

Check out the Fair Trade Certified website for Fair Trade coffees, teas, chocolates, fresh fruit, body products and more. To find out what companies in your state offer organic products, visit the Organic Consumers Association website.
