Sustainable Sugar Product?

I'm looking to buy sugar grown and harvested using sustainable and humane practices. Does anyone have any suggestions? I live in Acton but am willing to go a fair distance for the right product. Thanks!

    You can get Fair Trade sugars at any Whole Foods.

      Thanks for the reference. WF's web site talks about their "Whole Trade" program but they don't use a third-party certification program, just one they've developed. I'm a fan of WF but would prefer to buy fair trade certified by a third party.
