Who doesn’t love a good cup of coffee? Waylon talks about the new trend of direct trade, how it is different from fair-trade, and why we should ask a few more questions before we down that cup of coffee.
Elephant is psyched to be working in partnership with Google+ on our new live video series, which features three live videos a week (that can be watched later, too).
Let’s take our knowledge a step further: Check out third party social accountability certification. The SA 8000 is based on the standards from the ILO, UN, and national laws. Think people. Think planet. Think profit.
Subscribe to our weekly newsletter for our best blogs of the week,
including our latest Walk the Talk Show.
For the first word on our new videos each week: subscribe to Walk the Talk Show. All videos free!
Hangout with elephant on Google+ every Monday, Wednesday & Friday
at 12 noon MST.
