Here’s something to be scared about this Halloween: your child’s chocolate likely came at the expense of another child if it’s not fair-trade chocolate. If you choose to give out candy this year, make sure child slavery isn’t part of the process.
According to Stop the Traffik, an anti-trafficking group, 1.8 million children are subjected to backbreaking labor on West African cocoa farms, where 70% of the world's chocolate comes from. Fortunately there are exceptions (slavefreechocolate.org has an extensive list). To make your Halloween chocolate purchases safe and easy, we've got a wide variety of fairly traded chocolate from Equal Exchange, Divine Chocolate, Alter Eco, and Taza Chocolate.
Want to know more about what's at stake this Halloween and why fair trade matters? Watch this video from Equal Exchange!
