Musician Grace Potter arrives at the 'A Decade of Difference' concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, on Oct. 15.

Vermont musician Grace Potter is going to tell the world about fair trade, a way to provide farmers across the world fair prices for their product.

Potter and musician Michael Franti will be performing live from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday on Green Mountain Coffee's Facebook page.

Since Tropical Storm Irene inundated Vermont, Potter has done a number of benefit concerts to help with flood relief.

In their concert, Potter and Franti will share how choices as small as the coffee people drink can help make big changes.

Potter says working with Green Mountain Coffee is a great way to encourage people to make the switch and look for the Fair Trade Certified label on the products they buy.
