Fair Trade Products

Fair Trade available every Sunday!

Five chocolate varieties are available, including Very Dark Chocolate, Dark Chocolate with Almonds, Orange Dark Chocolate, Mint Chocolate and Milk Chocolate with Hazelnut. The price remains at $3.00 per bar. In addition, Equal Exchange has just introduced a new line of fairly traded, organic nuts and dried fruit to complement their ever popular Tamari Roasted Almonds. Available from the Fair Trade closet are 5 oz. packages of Organic Dried Mangos selling for $5 and 8 oz. packages of Organic Natural Cashews selling for $7.

Other items for sale include coffee, tea, olive oil and Geo bars. All items are Fair Trade and Organic. With your purchases from Equal Exchange, you can trust that the farmers who grow your food receive a guaranteed fair price for their product and that the farming methods are consistent with environmentally sound practices. Equal Exchange works in cooperation with the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) which receives a percentage of all proceeds. 

The U.S. State Dept. estimates 100,000 children are forced to work in cocoa factories. Buying fair trade chocolate is one of the most effective ways to combat child labor slavery. Thus, WUMC offers fair trade mini chocolate bars for you to hand out on Halloween. Take some from the display in the Narthex. Reverse Trick-or-Treat cards are also available. (Donations to offset the cost of the minis is appreciated but not required.)
