Ethical Shopping

Two Magic Words: Chocolate and Coffee, at Equal Exchange


Chocolate, Coffee, Tea, Snacks, and Gifts





Equal Exchange is your one stop shop for all things edible gift basket.  They sell an array of coffees, teas, snack items, and gifts, and their website will entice you with candy bars, cocoas, and everything you need to make your Christmas cozy.  They even sell beautiful wrapping paper.  They had me at those two magic words: chocolate and coffee.

Why I Like This:

Equal Exchange cares a lot about farmers.  They partner with farmer co-ops to bring us fairly traded and organic products.  Many of their products are vegan and kosher as well.  If you’re planning a fundraiser or want to provide coffee at your church or school, they sell wholesale and equip you to re-sell their products.  For Valentine’s Day this year, my kids passed out their adorable Valentine’s cards and mini chocolate bars, so stay tuned for that.  I registered on their website, and a few days later, I received a coupon book in the mail that gave me free shipping and several dollars off.

Slave-Free Christmas Challenge:

This Christmas, I’ve challenged myself to shop my entire Christmas list from organizations that are helping people, not hurting people.  Today, 27 million men, women, and children live as someone else’s property.  Slaves are making the items that I’m buying to celebrate the birth of my Lord and Savior.  Somehow I don’t think He’s blessed by the blood on His birthday presents.  For more information on my Slave-Free Christmas project, click here.
