Common Grounds Coffee is a not-for-profit coffee company with the intention of using coffee as a means to bring light to the issue of human trafficking, both in Canada and worldwide. We believe that coffee can be a tangible platform to start the discussion with people who are unaware of the problem, and can also be an easy first step to mobilize individuals to become involved. We partner with organizations working in anti-trafficking to share their message, and donate 50% of our net profits from all retail and wholesale sales to these partners to support their work.
50% of our net profits are donated to our
Not In My City
#NotInMyCity is a facilitative organization that is raising awareness and taking collective action to prevent and end human trafficking and sexual exploitation. #NotInMyCity builds alliances to support, facilitate and advocate for the development and mobilization for a strategic, integrated plan to bring about transformational and sustainable changes at the grassroots, practice, policy and legislative levels.
Where you spent your dollar matters. Make it count.
In addition to donating 50% of all our profits to local organizations working to combat human trafficking in our city and around the world, we also ensure our supply-side partners are working to increase the livelihood of the farmers, their families and communities through sustainable practices and fair wages.
Most farmers in developing areas of Southeast Asia would earn significantly less producing common crops like soy, rice or corn. Even with coffee beans they are still often not paid enough to make a sustainable living. Being paid a fair wage means they can support their families and invest in an education for their children, helping raise the overall standard of living for the whole community.
