A mug of fair trade dark roast isn’t just another cup of coffee; just as a fair trade chocolate bar isn’t just another piece of candy. When you buy fair trade products you know where they come from, and you can be sure that the people who produced them are paid a fair price for them, have access to benefits such as education for their children and professional development for fellow workers. But it doesn’t end there. Once you know how your economic choices can support production that is fair and sustainable, bigger questions often follow ‐ questions that can take you from advocating for changes in the coffee served at your parish to advocating for changes in U.S. international trade policy.
