Boston Stoker, and many of the farms that provide the produce that we so proudly sell to you, is now working with the Forest Stewardship Council and supports Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms! This certification, backed by the standards setup by the Sustainable Agriculture Network, is a sign to you that we don’t just care to find delicious coffee to give to our customers, but we also want to support the farms and plantations that are directly working to protect our world’s rainforests and the workers that live in and around them.
The Rainforest Alliance is an international nonprofit organization with over 20 years experience in the development and promotion of sustainable standards in farming, forestry and tourism. These standards protect the environment and promote the well-being of workers, their families and their communities.
As you’ll see throughout our store, many of our products carry the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal, and therefore are approved by the FSC as meeting specific standards of sustainable practices. When you purchase a product bearing this seal, you are directly supporting the coffee farms and their workers that are associated with the FSC and the Rainforest Alliance, and therefore helping ensure the survival of one of the most important natural biomes in the world.
