Equal Exchange Giveaway - UPDATED!


In an effort to open this giveaway up to EVERYONE, not just those with a Paypal account or those willing to sign up for one, the Paypal stipulation has been removed. If in fact you DO have an account, fantastic, but if not you are still absolutely welcomed and ENCOURAGED to enter this amazingly awesome giveaway! Hope this works better for everyone, and my apologies if you felt left out because of it. THANKS! :)

You may have heard lots of buzz lately about products being fair trade certified and wondered just what the heck that's all about. The fantastic folks at Equal Exchange are pioneers in Fair Trade merchandise, and 100% of their products are fairly traded. Not only do they have a fantastic assortment of Fair Trade products, including coffees, teas, chocolate, sugars, cocoa and dried fruits, but their website is an amazing resource about Fair Trade products.

I love Equal Exchange stuff whenever I can fit it into my budget, but I can say that I have their coffee right next to my coffee make right now. It's their organic breakfast blend (already ground), and it's so good. I would take anything I can get free from them (smile)!
I would sign up on Facebook or Twitter, but I don't have an account. I know I'm stuck in the on-line stone ages...
