Nimble’s Daily Habits: Organic and Fair Trade Coffee Anyone?
This week Nimble launched an internal initiative called, Daily Habits. Through Daily Habits, the Nimble team will be working together to make more sustainable and environmentally friendly choices in our day-to-day work.
Our first change that we made this week was making the swap from supermarket purchased, brown-water-esque coffee to deliciously ethical coffee beans from Toby’s Estate
. It’s Organic, it’s Fair Trade and it tastes good in the mouth as well as the heart.
Why choose Fair Trade?
Did you know that 90% of the world’s coffee production takes place in developing countries with the top three producers being Brazil, Vietnam and Cambodia? Working conditions in the coffee industry have often been described as ‘sweatshops in the fields’.
By choosing Fair Trade, we help the change by providing the growers in these developing countries better working conditions and a higher cut of the profit.
Why choose Organic?
Organic coffee means that it is grown without using any synthetic fertilisers or pesticides and without the aid of any genetically modified organisms. It also benefits the environment. With no chemicals being used in production, processing or packaging – it does not pollute the environment.
By choosing Organic, we are making positive changes to our own health as well as preserving the environment.
If you’d like to make the same change, we highly recommend the Fair Trade and Organic range at Toby’s Estate found here
