Fair Trade: Fare Thee Well? by Elisa Birnbaum

While on assignment in Costa Rica recently, I toured a fair trade-certified coffee cooperative. After witnessing the rigorous work that went into producing each aromatic cup of my beloved beverage, I met with workers on the ground, hearing firsthand their assessment of fair trade. The reviews were positive, one man even calling it a blessing for their families and livelihoods, with the help of vigorous hand motions and an interpreter.

But I was still left wondering. Sure, fair trade has made inroads, but is it doing enough? Even if we focus specifically on coffee, is certification meeting the needs of producers, workers and buyers?

Social impact app

Social Impact is the free global app that uses the GPS feature in a iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to display retail social enterprises closest to you RIGHT NOW, wherever you are.

Many of these businesses are restaurants, coffee shops, catering services, bakeries, and ice cream stores, which create local social impact from every dollar you spend. Other listed businesses are “fair trade” stores or social enterprises with online ordering capabilities.
