(ENDED) Cruisin' Through Summer: Equal Exchange Back to School Fundraising is Fun Giveaway (Ends 8/28)

PRODUCT REVIEW

Equal Exchange
My family does our fair share to help the environment and to be frugal at the same time. I recently went searching for fair trade coffee and found Equal Exchange. While researching their fair trade coffee, I also learned about the Equal Exchange’s Organic & Fair Trade School Fundraising Program. I know many of you readers are also eco-friendly and frugal...so here is a giveaway/review for you!

The Equal Exchange Fundraiser Program allows schools and community groups to make money (40% profit), while benefiting small organic farmers and artisans around the globe. The fundraiser features organic and fairly traded coffees, teas, cocoas, chocolates, nuts & berries, and handmade gift wrap (tree-free!) from Equal Exchange, and beautiful gifts for the home from Ten Thousand Villages (www.tenthousandvillages.com). The Equal Exchange Fundraiser works both as an event and/or catalog sale and is an easy way to both make money for the school, while reinforcing classroom values of social and environmental responsibility and global citizenship

Equal Exchange’s unique fundraising program also includes FREE educational materials to empower teachers to delve deeper into the issues surrounding Fair Trade and cooperative economics: www.equalexchange.coop/educationaltools

The image below shows a sample of some of the Equal Exchange items that you may order online. If you're interested in joining the Equal Exchange Fundraiser, click here!
