A Valentine’s Day reminder, given chocolate’s status as a conflict substance, that ethical (and tasty!) chocolate is readily available. Why is this important? With Fair Trade chocolate:
* Forced and abusive child labor practices are prohibited
* Farming families earn a price that is adequate to meet their basic human needs
* Environmentally sustainable production methods are required
Where to buy Fair Trade chocolate and other Fair Trade goods?

Happy Valentine’s Day from THE ENVIRONMENTALIST
