WHY FAIR TRADE?

Acton Coffee House is committed to selling coffees and teas that are fairly traded and sustainably grown. 

 

Our coffee is roasted locally in Massachusetts by a roaster who follows fair  trade principles in all his purchases. He carries organically grown beans and works hard on maintaining a personal relationship with the people who do business with his company.

 

The Fair Trade movement advocates that social responsibility be coupled with protecting the environment, as Fair Trade standards require protection of local ecosystems and ensure that farmers receive a harvest price that allows them to practice sustainable agriculture.
