Fair Trade Products

Buy coffee that is people and wildlife friendly!

RRUUC’s Latin American Task Network (LATN) in partnership with the UUSC’s Coffee Project is selling Fair Trade shade grown coffee, chocolate, and tea after Sunday services to raise funds for local and international organizations.  For every pound of coffee, tea, chocolate, pecans, and other goods sold through the UUSC Coffee Project, 20 cents goes to UUSC's Small Farmer Fund.  So stop by after the Sunday service and check out our delectable Tanzanian Jubilee blend or our mouth watering dark chocolate with almonds!

What is the UUSC Coffee Project?

The UUSC Coffee Project is a collaboration between UUSC and Equal Exchange, a worker-owned fair trade company based in West Bridgewater, Mass. Through the project, UUs buy fair trade coffee, tea, sugar, chocolate bars, and other tasty treats in their congregations and at community events. It is a way for UUSC supporters to learn about fair trade and express their values through informed consumer choices.

Since the project was launched in 2001, hundreds of UU congregations have made the initiative a success. In 2008 alone, UUs purchased 45.3 tons of fairly traded products. UUs have the highest participation rate of any denomination in Equal Exchange's Interfaith Program.

Through the fund, UUSC works with small farmer cooperatives that grow, produce, and sell goods for fair trade. Together, as partners, UUSC and its Small Farmer Fund partners implement innovative human rights projects that empower workers — especially women and indigenous persons — in the United States and around the world. For every pound of coffee, tea, chocolate, pecans, and other goods sold through the UUSC Coffee Project, 20 cents goes to UUSC's Small Farmer Fund, adding up to as much as $18,000 per year.    Visit www.uusc.org/smallfarmerfund to learn more about UUSC's Small Farmer Fund partners.
