Great news! Café 101 and Reboot have joined the Fair Trade journey, meaning that anywhere on campus you choose to have your coffee or hot chocolate now, you’ll be helping to ensure workers in developing countries are receiving basic humanitarian services. Think – good health, clean water, decent wages and schooling for their children. All those things we just take for granted.
The University has just been recognised as a Fair Trade University by the Fair Trade Association of Australia and New Zealand.
UC students were behind the original introduction of Fair Trade coffee onto campus, even back before the earthquakes. It’s now in every UCSA café at both Ilam and Dovedale, and with the UC Council’s endorsement, now in every UC kitchen and staff room.
Every student who drinks tea, coffee or hot chocolate on campus should feel proud for playing a part in making a difference on a global scale.
By supporting Fair Trade products, you are helping to ensure that workers in coffee and tea plantations in developing countries receive basic humanitarian services like good health, clean water, decent wages and schooling for their children.
Come and join us in the Undercroft on 8 August between 12.00pm and 1.00pm when you can check out the Fair Trade stalls and taste the different teas and coffees on offer under the Fair Trade brand.
