Visit our cafe on Friday May 13, Saturday May 14 or Sunday May 15 to take part in the Whitehorse World Fair Trade Challenge! How? It's very simple: all you need to do is enjoy a great cup of organic fair trade Bean North coffee. We tally all the fair trade drinks we sell during the weekend, and together we support the farmers in their fight against climate change!
This challenge is one way to raise awareness that climate change is already affecting the earth we all share - particularly the farmers behind the beans we love
