Leslie Loves Veggies & Alter Eco Giveaway

Alter Eco Olive Oil & Dark Chocolate Giveaway!


I found a GREAT Company that really stands for something great!

Alter Eco are a team of fair trade visionaries and food-loving explorers on a mission to connect you to their farmers and their honest foods. When you taste the sweet justice of their mission you will understand their persistence.

Alter Eco is a Fair Trade company! What is Fair Trade?? Glad you asked!!

Fair Trade is a form of global commerce where priority is given to trading with small and marginalized farmer groups, building trade relations based on solidarity and sustainability. This approach ensures them fair remuneration that covers the full cost of production and contributes to the continual improvement of working conditions and environmental sustainability.

To learn more about Fair trade visit Alter Eco

*Alter Eco is going to be launching a Fair Trade Cooking Challenge in October in Honor of Fair Trade Month. Fair-minded participants are being asked to create and post their Fair Trade recipes (including at least 1 Alter Eco ingredient) onto the Alter Eco site to create a Virtual Fair Trade Community Cookbook.

There will be a variety of categories and options such as vegetarian, appetizer, entree, gluten-free etc.

While the details are still being worked out, They know that the top peer reviewed recipes will receive gift baskets filled with Fair Trade goodies! They are hoping to plant a tree in honor of every participant in the Peruvian Amazon where Alter Eco is implementing their carbon offset program.
