Do you ride the Boston/Cambridge T to work or school? Do you enjoy a cup of Fair Trade Certified coffee with your morning commute?
Well, Breugger’s Bagels, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, TransFair USA, and the MBTA are here to thank you for your commitment to a sustainable commute with a gift card for FREE Fair Trade Certified Coffee!! If you don’t already choose this brew, then now’s your chance to check it out, get your free coupon, and make the switch to Fair Trade.
On Wednesday, May 13th (that’s tomorrow folks) volunteers with TransFair USA, the Boston Faith and Justice Network, the Fair Trade Boston campaign, and your very own Autonomie Project will hand out over 20,000 coupons for Fair Trade Certified coffee from Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and Bruegger’s at these seven busy T stations:
South Station (Atlantic Ave. & Summer St.)
Kenmore (500 Commonwealth Ave @ Brookline Ave.)
Porter Square (Somerville @ Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge)
Longwood (Chapel & Longwood St. in Brookline)
Downtown Crossing (Washington St. & Summer St.)
Government Center (Tremont, Court and Cambridge St.)
Back Bay (Dartmouth St. @ Copley Place)
Each packet will contain coupons worth a free cup of hot and a free cup of iced Fair Trade Certified coffee at Bruegger’s, plus a coupon worth $2.50 off a package of Green Mountain Coffee at local grocery stores.
The event is part of the MBTA’s celebration of National Transportation Week and volunteers will be participating in solidarity with national efforts to set the record for the World’s Largest Fair Trade Coffee Break as part of World Fair Trade Day 2009.
Bruegger’s is among more than 700 national restaurants and cafes that offer Fair Trade Certified products, meaning farmers in Africa, Asia and Latin America are paid fair prices for their products and that crops are raised with environmentally sustainable agriculture techniques.
What better way to continue the celebration of World Fair Trade Day and make the connection between Fair Trade and a sustainable lifestyle. The choice is simple. Fair Trade Certified coffee is helping farmers, farm workers and the environment.
We hope to see you tomorrow bright and early! And if you need inspiration, check out San Francisco’s version with the BART system:
