This giveaway has ended. Today marks birthday number 4 for The Good Human. On May 19th of 2006 I launched the site as something as a hobby to keep me busy – and little did I know it was going to still be keeping me busy 4 years later! After almost 1,800 posts and 7,000 comments, I am humbled at your support and so very proud of the work that WE are doing here. Without you guys, this site wouldn’t exist – so thank you for your emails, comments, and ongoing support. It means a ton to me, and I hope we can keep it going for another 4 years. Thank you!

And now for something really exciting…

A few weeks ago I wrote about finding my new favorite coffee “Organic Love Buzz” at my local grocery store, Natural Grocers. Organic, fairly traded, and sold by Equal Exchange, this stuff rocks. Well, the good people over at Equal Exchange noticed that I mentioned their coffee and wanted to offer up something for the readers of The Good Human so you too could try some of their products. I have given away Equal Exchange products on the site before, but this time it’s different – they are going to give a lucky winner a $50 gift card to use on anything they sell online!

Equal Exchange started with an idea: what if food could be traded in a way that is honest and fair, a way that empowers both farmers and consumers? What if trade supported family farms that use organic methods, rather than industrialized agribusinesses that rely on harmful chemicals? Their mission is to build long-term trade partnerships that are economically just and environmentally sound, to foster mutually beneficial relationships between farmers and consumers and to demonstrate, through our success, the contribution of worker co-operatives and Fair Trade to a more equitable, democratic and sustainable world. A few other things you should know:

  • Equal Exchange is a worker co-operative and pioneered the Fair Trade food & beverages category back in the late 1980’s.
  • 100% of products are fairly traded. 96% are also certified organic.
  • Trade directly with democratically organized small farmer cooperatives.
  • Pay producers a guaranteed minimum price that provides a stable source of income as well as improved social services.
  • They aim to develop more environmentally-sound business practices.

They are an amazing company/co-op and everything I have ever bought with their logo on it was great. From chocolate to coffee to tea, you won’t be disappointed with their stuff. Now, how can you win this $50 gift certificate? Pay VERY close attention to the rules in order for your entry to count.

The Rules:

— The $50 gift certificate will be paid ONLY via PayPal. To redeem the gift certificate the winner will need to have a PayPal account (which is free & easy to set-up if you don’t have one already). Your Paypal account/name is not needed at the time of entry – it will be asked for if you are the winner.

— On choosing items: Though we can ship chocolate at this time of the year and do offer that service I personally would recommend against it. The insulated/cold shipping option has a bigger environmental footprint and costs more.

— Only ONE entry per person/per IP address/per email address.

— You must be a subscriber by email or RSS to The Good Human to enter. Why? Because inside the daily email or RSS feed that goes out, toward the bottom, in bold, there will be a code word(s) that you need to email me in order to enter the giveaway. Once you see this code, you can email it to me either via my email address (if you have it) or via the Contact Form. Comments left on the post as entries will not be counted.

— Out of all correct entries submitted, the winner will be chosen at random.

— Winners will be contacted by email after the contest ends.

— Giveaway is open to US residents only and for those residing in the continental U.S..

— Giveaway starts today and closes Saturday, May 22nd at 12 noon MST. All correct entries must be received before then, and any entries received after then will be discarded.

Thank you to Equal Exchange for offering such an amazing giveaway for the readers of The Good Human, and thanks again for your support over the last 4 years. It means a lot and I sincerely appreciate it. Good luck!
