“It’s the people in other countries that have the ability to help us here,” says Marvin Cascante Lobo, a Costa Rican coffee farmer. When you start your school day with a cup of Fairtrade Certified coffee or tea, you are helping to make a difference to 1.2 million farmers and workers, and their communities, in developing countries.
When you choose to buy products displaying the Fairtrade Mark, you’re voting for children to be in school, for women to receive equal pay, and for community projects like healthcare. With your involvement that impact can grow. Make the switch to using Fairtrade Certified products in your school by visiting

Whether you are a heartened individual or part of a school group, every voice and every action counts.
