October is Fair Trade Month

As some of you may know, I am a Bzz Agent. Sometimes I receive free products in exchange to share information on my blog with all of you. But I am still very selective about what I share on my blog, because I have to feel passionate about the products or cause.

Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade Certified

I was recently selected to participate in the Green Mountain Coffee® Fair Trade Certified™ Campaign. Not only was I a part of this campaign last year and was so excited to be included in it again since I learned the importance of fair trade, I have tried to share the importance of fair trade on my blog.

Most of the time, your coffee is the thing that just helps you power through your day, making it easy to overlook. But take a moment to reflect on the impact it can have beyond your next deadline or early morning errand. Fair Trade means a great cup of coffee for you and a better quality of life for farmers. By purchasing Fair Trade Certified™ Green Mountain Coffee® brand, you help coffee farmers receive a fair price for their beans, which means a great cup of coffee and a better quality of life in coffee-farming communities.

You might have noticed some of my updates on Facebook about October being Fair Trade Month. And in celebration of Fair Trade Month, Green Mountain Coffee® is introducing Fair Trade Certified™ Three Continent Blend, which combines the flavors and aromas of three continents in one harmonious Extra Bold blend. The only thing that might be richer than the benefits of purchasing Fair Trade coffee are the flavors. As the largest purchaser of Fair Trade Certified™ coffee, Green Mountain Roasters, Inc. (the parent company of Green Mountain Coffee®) knows that quality is second to none. That’s why they offer a wide selection of Fair Trade coffees, including brand-new Three Continent Blend, which combines the flavors and aromas of South America, Africa, and Asia into one harmonious Extra Bold Blend.

Please feel free to drop by ChooseFairTrade.org and let me know why Fair Trade might be important to you.

Sambazon SuperFood Juices & Smoothies {Review & Giveaway}

I was truly excited to receive the opportunity to review Sambazon Fruit Juices and Smoothies from Moms Meet. I have been on a health kick lately and have lost 35 pounds! And exciting as that is, I am getting tired of the same old thing. It's good for your body and diet to try and variety of different foods.

My daughter and I both loved the Sambazon Protein Acai Berry + Vanilla. It didn't look like a vanilla smoothie but it tasted like it. It was a great little pick-me-up after nap and before dinner.

The reason why Green Mountain has changed to Green Mountain Fair Trading, is because they are simply that. Fair Traders. Now let's take a moment to think about what that means:

Definition of Fair Trading according to First Fair Trade Town, USA:

"Fair Trade is a tool for reducing poverty in developing nations. It's a form of trade that builds equitable and long-term partnerships between producers in developing regions of the world and consumers in the north. Fair Trade guarantees many things including the following.

Producers receive a minimum set price for their goods, financial and technical support, healthy and safe working conditions, economic development of their communities, and educational opportunities for their children.

Consumers receive excellent products plus the peace of mind that comes with knowing they are actively addressing poverty, preserving the environment, and promoting an end to child labor.

The planet receives a chance at health and healing since Fair Trade actively promotes sustainable farming techniques, biodiversity, and bird and animal habitat preservation."

Grace Potter and Michael Franti are helping spread the word about how important Fair Trade is through source trips and right now if you visit Green Mountain's Facebook Page, you can get an idea of what they are doing by watching LIVE-STREAMING of their concerts.

Now that you know a little more about Fair Trading, what are your thoughts? Are you going to make an effort to buy products that are produced through Fair Trading? Do you want companies to have to prove their Fair Trading status on their labels? Please share you thoughts on the topic.
