Foods That Give Back
Most of us easily spend a couple of dollars here and there to indulge in trendy juice drinks, energy bars, and even cups of
coffee. So it’s amazing to think that our snack and beverage picks might influence the quality of life somewhere else a world
away, doing things like keeping environments healthy and sustainable, feeding hungry children, or building wells for clean
water. Seems like a win-win scenario. We munch, they benefit. So check out some our favorite-tasting global do-gooders. Many
are fair-trade products; others are just do-good companies making a difference in their own unique way.
