We always love to highlight organizations that value people over profit, and there’s no better way to do that than inviting Kristen King, an Organizer for Equal Exchange, which has been a leading pioneer in fair-trade productions and ethical production for the past 35 years.

Kristen breaks down what exactly “fair-trade” means and how to ensure the product you’re consuming really is ethically produced.

She also shares the modus operandi Equal Exchange uses, which connects small-scale farmers with a global market and consumers with the farmers behind the coffee, tea, chocolate and other products we all consume everyday.

Fierce Freedom listeners can also get 10% off their Equal Exchange purchase this month by using our promo code FIERCE at checkout.

Listeners are also encouraged to join EE’s free Citizen-Consumer Network to continue the conversation and learning how to transform the food system into a sustainable model throughout all parts of the supply chain.
