October is Fair Trade Month! For more than a decade, Green Mountain Coffee® has been a leader in the fair trade movement, providing a better cup of coffee to you and a better quality of life for coffee farmers.
This year, we’re celebrating with our “Great Coffee, Good Vibes, Pass It On” campaign – bringing Fair Trade Month to life with good vibes you can taste, hear, and feel! Here are some ways you can take part in the fun:
To celebrate Fair Trade Month, both Grace Potter and Michael Franti will give exclusive performances streamed live on the Green Mountain Coffee Facebook page. You’re invited to RSVP for the events on our Facebook page and experience the good vibes firsthand:
- - Oct. 9 at 9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST — Grace Potter will perform live from famed music venue Joe’s Pub in New York City. Potter’s set will feature unique acoustic versions of songs from her new album, The Lion The Beast The Beat. You can RSVP here!
- - Oct. 24 at 11 p.m. EST/8 p.m. PST — Michael Franti will rev up Los Angeles from the first-ever Great Coffee, Good Vibes Lounge, brought to you by Green Mountain Coffee. Fans will be able to visit 7111 Melrose Avenue on October 24 and enjoy a free cup of Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade. Be sure to RSVP here so you don’t miss out!
Join us on the Green Mountain Coffee Facebook page to view photos and videos from Grace Potter and Michael Franti’s trips to fair trade coffee cooperatives in Colombia and Sumatra. After watching these videos, you’ll have the chance to receive free fair trade coffee samples or coupons and enter for a chance to win a trip to one of our source countries: Costa Rica!
We're jamming a lot into 31 days so you can enjoy great coffee, listen to good tunes, and pass on the fair trade vibes!
