Next week, a group of us at Equal Exchange are going back to Chiapas to visit CIRSA (the Indigenous Communities of the Simojovel de Allende Region), one of our favorite small farmer fair trade coffee co-op partners, which I wrote about last October.
In preparation for the trip, someone just reminded me about this short video which was made by Daniel Steinberg, former Community Brand Builder after our 2008 visit.
I recommend watching it if you haven’t yet seen it. Even if you have, watch it again! Daniel did a great job capturing our visit, our partnership with the co-op, and Equal Exchange’s mission to support Authentic Fair Trade.
We’ll be writing more from Chiapas next week… stay tuned!
