Grounds for Change is a fair trade coffee company local to the North West. They are 100% certified organic and carbon free. To be considered a carbon free company they must submit their product life cycle to a very detailed analysis.
The really cool thing about Grounds for Change however, is contained in this blurb I pulled from their website.
“A number of community-based programs in coffee-growing countries directly benefit from the purchase of our coffee. For example, farmers in Peru and Mexico receive a higher price per pound for their coffee (above and beyond the going rate for certified coffee) to help support local domestic violence intervention programs and small business loans for women.”
So they’re helping the environment, they’re paying fair prices for coffee and they’re supporting programs to enrich the lives of people all over the world.
Order some coffee from these folks.
