Canadians can join millions of coffee lovers in the World Fairtrade Challenge on May 13-15, 2016 and support coffee farmers in their fight against climate change.
With your help, we're aiming to reach a record number of cups of Fairtrade coffee drunk in three days. Why? Because climate change is already affecting the earth we all share - particularly the farmers behind the beans we love.
Choose Fairtrade coffee between May 13-15 and register your cups online, as part of this global challenge.
