Imagine your morning cuppa had the power to change the world

In the hustle of our daily routines, it’s all too easy to forget the impact of our seemingly minor decisions.By making a simple switch to Fairtrade certified products, your organisation can champion the rights of workers and farmers in the Global South, ensuring they receive fair compensation for their labour. Embracing Fairtrade in your workplace isn’t just a statement; it’s a commitment to equity, sustainability, and conscious consumerism.

Make a Simple Switch: Transform Your Workplace with Fairtrade

Starting your day with a cup of Fairtrade coffee or tea not only tastes good but also does good. By switching just two staple office supplies (coffee, tea or hot chocolate) to their Fairtrade certified counterparts, you partake in a global movement that values people and the planet. This simple switch has the power to:

  1. Ensure Fair Wages: Every sip supports a pricing model that gives farmers and workers a fair wage, enabling them to support their families and communities.
  2. Invest in Community Development: Beyond fair prices, the Fairtrade Premium—an additional contribution—is invested back into the producers’ communities, funding education, healthcare, and business improvements.
  3. Promote Sustainable Practices: Fairtrade certification also emphasizes environmental stewardship, encouraging practices that preserve natural resources and biodiversity.

How does it work?

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Step 1: Regularly purchase two or more Fairtrade certified products for your workplace.

Step 2: head to fairtradeanz.org/make-a-simple-switch and complete the online application form.

Step 3: Receive your Fairtrade Supporting Workplace toolkit and proudly display your badge!

Why It Matters:

For businesses committed to sustainability, becoming a Fairtrade workplace is a tangible step towards a more equitable and sustainable world. Adopting Fairtrade is a natural extension of your commitment, one that benefits not only your team but also the global community of farmers and workers. Together, let’s make a difference, one cup at a time.
