Today on The Daily Michigan we have another offering from one of our featured partners, Higher Grounds Trading Co of Traverse City. Higher Grounds was formed to create connections between people who enjoy a fair trade and organic coffee and the amazing people who harvest the green coffee beans.
Recently, they added a new product to their line, fair trade, organic olive oil from Palestine. It’s extra virgin and cold pressed and proceeds directly benefit the families who grow the olives. We’re pairing that with a limited edition t-shirt commemorating the recent Run Across Palestine.
The Run Across Palestine is a project of On the Ground, a nonprofit that works to support fair-trade farmers all over the world. Higher Grounds founder Chris Treter helped to create On the Ground and you can learn all about the Run Across Palestine and their other projects in the video below or watch them all on YouTube!
