Ever wondered about the impact of your morning cuppa at work?
Who can possibly end world hunger or achieve comprehensive climate action on their own? At least, that’s the catch-cry of people who want to good in the world, but don’t know how. After all, in the face of such enormous global inequality, it can be hard to see how the actions of one person can create change.
But equality begins at home and in the workplace, where even the tiniest everyday decisions can make a huge difference in the broader scheme of things. Thinking about how much coffee and tea you drink over an average week, it takes only a short amount of time before each drink adds up to something much larger on a global scale.
Here’s the good news: this can actually be quite easy! At Fairtrade, we focus on both the global picture and on the small, everyday actions you can take to make the world a fairer place. That’s why we believe that the simplest action – like enjoying some coffee, tea or chocolate in your workplace – can empower farmers and workers.
