The company's Trade for a Change fundraising program allows nonprofit organizations to sell Higher Grounds' organic and fair trade blends and thus increase sales for the coffee farmers.
With each purchase of one of the Coffees for Change blends, "Higher Grounds will donate a portion of the proceeds to worthy initiatives including the promotion of organic agriculture, education about economic justice, protection of bird habitat and indigenous rights and the construction of potable water systems!"
Through the Water for All campaign, each purchase of the Water Carrier’s Blend will result in a $5.00 donation to support the construction of sustainable water systems in coffee-growing countries.
Higher Grounds' Fair Trade Tours invites you to join them on a trip to partner farms and fair trade collaborators. You can choose from trips to Africa, Central America, or South America and $100 per participant is donated to a local project.
In addition, "Recycling, composting, and purchasing post consumer recycled paper for office supplies are all “business as usual” at Higher Grounds!"
