The coffee featured in this bundle is Fairtrade Certified which means that they have been ethically sourced from the best coffee regions in the world. Many of these regions have been subject to many forms of worker exploitation like child labor, forced labor, and discrimination as well as low wages. The Fairtrade certification ensures that our coffee is sourced from farms that have a fair wages and working conditions. Not only do Fairtrade workers receive overall better payment and lifestyle, but their communities are also the beneficiaries of something called Fairtrade premiums. This is a sum of money that is put into a communal fund for a council of elected workers and farmers to use however they see fit—whether that is improving their infrastructure, or their social and economic conditions. Farmers describe climate change as one of the biggest threats they face. Fairtrade certified sites must comply with strict environmental standards to protect the precious ecosystems in which they reside.Learn More
