Support a living income for coffee farmers: Sign the #coffeepledge
 
Coffee is among the world’s most-loved beverages, with an estimated three billion cups enjoyed every day. It has become vital in our everyday lives, especially to the farmers who harvest the beans that make our favourite cup of coffee possible. 
 
Due to a dramatic decline in coffee prices – which are at their the lowest in 15 years – millions of coffee farmers struggle to make enough to live on or to support their families. Independent research shows that from a US$3 cup of coffee the vast majority of small growers receive as little as the equivalent of one cent. Imagine going to work every day and not earning enough to eat and cover basic needs, such as food, healthcare and education. If things don’t change, more farmers will be forced to abandon coffee plantations and migrate to urban areas or abroad, just to survive. 
 
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO ENSURE COFFEE CONTINUES TO HAVE A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
 
This year the International Coffee Organization (ICO) – which brings together the governments of countries in which coffee is produced, processed or consumed – is working to highlight the plight of coffee farmers and the urgent need to take collective action. 
 
We’re asking you to put your voice and weight behind our #coffeepledge movement.

By signing this petition you’ll give consumers a voice and help us to influence those who can effect positive change for coffee farmers around the world: the international community, governments, development banks, the United Nations and the wider coffee industry. With your assistance we can help coffee farmers receive the livelihood they need and deserve through a living income, and ensure prosperity and happiness for all.  
 
We need the power of one million signatures from all over the world.
 
What are you waiting for? Show your commitment by signing the #coffeepledge in support of a living income for coffee farmers and pass it on
 
Share the pledge on social media using #coffeepledge and #internationalcoffeeday and post a video of why you support a living income for coffee farmers and their families. 
 
Thank you for your support.
