1. When Buying Books
As far as I'm aware, slavery isn't necessarily a part of the publishing & printing industries, but books can take quite a toll on the environment. Better World Books is a pretty awesome organization that takes sells donated books & uses the profits to fund library & literacy programs. So when you buy next month's book club book, check them out first to both give a new life to an old book & to do good in the process! You can also purchase from them off Amazon.
2. When Drinking Coffee
Fair Trade Coffee is one of the most developed parts of the Fair Trade Industry. Talk to your local coffee shops & only frequent the ones that serve Fair Trade beans. And when you're buying beans yourself, look for the Fair Trade label. That extra few dollars can really go far in furthering the ethical supply chain. If you're in here in Austin, be sure to check out Two Hands that just opened in the Domain.
