Welcome to October! It's both National Fair Trade Month, and Co-op Month!
Look for sales throughout the month from companies who reflect product lines in both of these capacities. Companies include:
- Blue Diamond Almond Grower's Co-op (Almond Breeze)
- Equal Exchange Fair Trade Worker's Co-op (Coffee, Chocolate, Tea)
- Pachamama Fair Trade Farmer's Co-op (Coffee).
Some of our favorite cooperatively owned companies with great products also include Organic Valley & Organic Prairie (the brand name of farms part of the CROPP cooperative), Frontier (fair trade herbs/cooperatively owned), Once Again Nut Butters, AK Press (worker's collective- books & t-shirts), and the Slingshot Collective (new organizers coming next week!). Go Co-op!
