Equal Exchange works to build economically and environmentally sound relationships between farmers and consumers. Their coffee and tea products are grown by small-scale farmers and facilitate fair trade. Fair trade ensures that small farmers get proper income from what they grow and also fosters a relationship between producer and consumer. Have your young adult group learn more about fair trade, and discuss how this is a better way to conduct trade. Serve Equal Exchange coffees and teas at your meetings. You might even suggest Equal Exchange for Christmas gifts this year (they make excellent hot cocoa)!
