News on coffee and social issues

by JulieCraves on June 3, 2006

Green LA girl has posts on coffee and social issues.  Coffee and immigration talks about the connection between the coffee crisis and people abandoning their farms and heading for the U.S. border…another example of how helping to improve living conditions in source countries (by paying a fair price for high-quality coffee) is beneficial in many ways.  Many great links in the post.  In Coffee against landmines, she highlights movement I had not heard of, that of the Coffeelands Landmine Survivors’ Trust.  Many of the top coffee producing countries are plagued by landmines, and this trust is a mechanism for the coffee industry to provide support for survivors.
