Fair Trade Your Workplace

One easy place to start with your workplace’s social responsibility is right next to the water cooler.

  • Do you serve Fair Trade coffee and tea in your breakroom?

Use this one question to start you on the path to making your workplace Fair Trade. Upgrading the office’s caffeine fix is a great and simple first step. For some delicious options, check out NWFTC member Equal Exchange. They also have chocolate if your breakroom needs a little treat.

If your business routinely buys holiday gifts for customers or employees, why don’t you show your corporate values by purchasing Fair Trade gifts this year? Check out other NWFTC members, like AWAZ Voice for Empowerment, who sell great gift items.

Need something else? Green America’s national green pages, directories and gift guides are great.

If you would like more information about any of the ideas in this or another “Fair Trade Your Life” post, or help getting started, please email nwfairtrade@gmail.com.
