For many years before industrialization, coffee growers have cultivated the beans of coffee organically without the use of insecticides or herbicides, yet modern efforts have concentrated on higher yield and production, sometimes detrimental to the crop, worker, as well as field. Organic coffee tends to utilize Eco-friendly ways of production with the use of shade trees, compost, and cross crop techniques. In addition, possibilities of water contamination are diminished, while animal, plant and insect species are left in their normal habitat and exist in their cycle, relatively free from human manipulation or destruction.
The fair trade act encourages that coffee farming co-operatives will be given a fair share of payment through direct purchase. By purchasing Fair Trade Organic Coffee, one not only helps empower 3rd World workers in semi-impoverished areas of the world, but sustains a healthy and environmentally friendly practice in cultivating coffee. This purchase may help stem the tide of low quality coffee which floods the current market and help the soil of those agrarian areas where coffee is produced without the use of herbicides and insecticides.
