Easter Fair Trade Chocolate

Why is Fair Trade Important?

Buying Fair Trade ensures no one is exploited in order to produce the good you are purchasing.  Did you know that children as young as 10 years old have been trafficked to Côte d’Ivoire and are working on cocoa plantations? Many of these children have never tasted chocolate. 75% of the world’s cocoa comes from West Africa.  You can help make a difference for these children.
