FAIR TRADE COFFEE WEEK
13th-20th December 2003
Make Trade Fair this Christmas
It's that time of year when we're all meeting friends over a coffee, or stocking up the cupboards for Christmas. So while you're having fun, make the effort this week to choose great tasting Fair Trade goods.
To celebrate the growth of Fair Trade coffee roasters in Sydney, and the new Australian Fair Trade accreditation logo, we're hosting Fair Trade Coffee Week from 13th-20th December.
IT'S EASY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
* Choose Fair Trade cups of coffee & tea in your local cafe
* Buy Fair Trade chocolate for presents
* Stock up on Fair Trade coffee beans for the Christmas season
* Encourage your university, workplace, or coffee shop to serve fair trade coffee
* See if your local deli or supermarket stocks fair trade tea, coffee and chocolate - and tell us if they do.
LOOK FOR FAIR TRADE SUPPLIERS
This time last year, there were very few Fair Trade suppliers. Thanks to your efforts and the Make Trade Fair campaign, there are now a number of great coffee roasters in Sydney supporting Fair Trade. Look out for:
* Tobys Estate - look for their and their distinctive black label at cafes throughout Sydney and the Toby's Estate Roastery and Espresso Bar at 129 Cathedral St (cnr Palmer St), Woolloomooloo NSW 2011
* Single Origin Coffee at 60-64 Resevoir Street, Surry Hills, NSW 2010, tel: 02 9211 0665 or email: Single Origin Coffee
* Tradewinds - Tradewinds is an alternative trading organisation that has been importing fairly traded tea and coffee for over twenty years. They supply great teas and coffees - look in your local delis, the Oxfam CAA shops or purchase online at Tradewinds
* Oxfam Community Aid Abroad Shops
Check out our 2 shops, one in the city and the new shop in Miranda

It's never been easier to make a difference. Have a very Merry Christmas and choose Fair Trade for the New Year.
