Special Edition Bag - Equality of Opportunity
Equality of Opportunity
Speaking with the farmers of El Oro, Ecuador, during the summer of 2016, we found their sons and daughters aren't completing middle school. We found that many of the farmers don't have a single piece of equipment - not even a machete. When we asked the farmers, "What's the biggest problem the coffee industry faces in El Oro?" Over 90% of the farmers stated: "Demand."
While we can't create equality of results, we can do our part to create equality of opportunities. Z Beans' mission is to create sustainable solutions for impoverished Ecuadorian coffee farmers by connecting them directly to consumers in The States.
This special edition bag celebrates that link. The link between the Ecuadorian farmer and you, the American consumer.
