(3BL Media/theCSRfeed) July 29, 2010 – Green Awakening, an inclusive and socially responsible, fair trade, organic coffee company recently partnered with Transfair USA to raise funds for non-profit and educational organizations during the month of July.
TransFair USA will receive $2.50 for every bag of Green Awakening’s all-organic, 100%-Fair Trade Certified™ coffee purchased through July 30th. Supporters of the fair trade certification organization may show their support by purchasing coffee here.
Green Awakening allocates approximately 30% of every sale it makes to non-profit contributions. All coffee is grown exclusively by small, local cooperatives in the mountains of Peru.
Green Awakening works directly with the small cooperatives to source organically grown coffee, which results in an increase in farmer income by at least 30% when compared with farmer sales to importers. Additionally, a core focus of Green Awakening is to improve the lives of women and their social, economic and political status within their communities. Besides giving back to society and creating meaningful change, Green Awakening has established an Education Fund for the children of their farmers.
Green Awakening recently expanded its non-profit partner program to include nine other organizations focused on womens issues, health and wellness, animal rights, community development, environmental programs and more.
