All Treats, No Tricks

October 15, 2016

Seeing the little ones dressed as ghouls and goblins may be adorable, but make sure it isn’t chocolate made with child labor they’re putting in their bag this holiday. Most chocolate and candies made by multi-national companies source the raw materials for their goodies from places that are not so good for labor rights. You can choose better by shopping for fair trade chocolate instead. Small farmers and cooperatives that are committed to fair trade principles make sure cocao beans they use are harvested ethically. Learn more about choosing slave-free chocolate here.

At The Good Buy, we stock four chocolate makers' products that'll make you’ll want to brag about what’s in your bag. So scare up some of the best-tasting chocolate in the world with Equal Exchange, Divine, Alter Eco and Taza

We've even got the reusable bags decorated with Jack O'Lantern or Skull Halloween patterns for your little monsters to carry their haul in!

Now, that's how kids should be enjoying Halloweennot working away their childhood the cocoa fields.
