Tim Hortons At end of rainbow
Tim Hortons helps me get through the early morning podcast recordings of The Green Tax Podcast. But here’s a quote from the Tim Horton’s website: “Although fair trade programs are admirable we decided against buying fair trade coffee and developing a program that works directly with the growers. The fair trade program requires certification on behalf of the farmers which is an expense they cannot usually afford plus it provides a price that has no relation to the quality of the coffee.”

Does this mean I need to stop ordering my morning Double Double? Come on Tim Horton’s, support fair trade coffee!
