Green Mountain Coffee For Boston T Riders

I was in Boston this week and was pleased to find Green Mountain Coffee Roasters had teamed up with TransFair USA and Bruegger’s Bakery-Cafés to reward MBTA riders for their environmentally friendly commuting habits.

An estimated 20,000 T riders should receive free coupons tomorrow that can be redeemed for hot or iced Fair Trade Certified Green Mountain Coffee at Bruegger’s Bakery-Cafés, plus a coupon worth $2.50 off a package of Green Mountain Coffee at local grocery stores, according to a press release passed along by Vermont-based Green Mountain Coffee.

Bruegger’s is among more than 700 national restaurants and cafes that offer Fair Trade Certified products, meaning farmers in Africa, Asia, and Latin America are paid fair prices for their products and that crops are raised with environmentally sustainable agriculture techniques.
