Q&A with Coco Libre Founder Mark Shaw
Viva la (coconut) revolución! As the folks at Coco Libre like to say, they’re liberating organic coconut water trapped inside young green coconuts. Coco Libre is one of the newest coconut waters to be Fair Trade Certified.
How does your favorite team stack up in terms of production of Fair Trade Certified goods?
The 2014 World Cup is well underway in Brazil. As you sit on your comfy couch with your Fair Trade certified coffee (or sneak in a game at work —don’t worry, we won’t tell!) and watch countries go head-to-head in the world’s most universally popular sport, we hope you'll take some time and learn about the positive impact that Fair Trade has on farmers in these countries.

The U.S. Pulls Through
Despite a rain-soaked 1-0 loss to Germany, the United States made it past the Group of Death and into the World Cup’s knockout stage, where they will play Belgium today at 1 pm PST.
Much of the U.S. team’s survival against Germany can be attributed to their solid defensive play and goalkeeping, which fended off eight German shots on goal. Luck played a part, too: had Ghana bested Portugal by two goals, the Americans would have been eliminated.
