Fair Trade Your Halloween

fthalIt is hard to believe that it is already the end of October! The positive of that is it means that Halloween is coming! Who doesn’t love costumes and candy? But, the chocolate so often given out and consumed on this day is often produced using child slavery on the Ivory Coast. How can you still celebrate but avoid supporting this? That’s easy. Buy fair trade Halloween candy! It is now easier than ever to ethically source all chocolate in your life. Check out these great options!

And, if you want to take an extra step, attach a note saying that this candy was produced with fair trade standards so that parents of the trick-or-treaters can learn about it, too!

Happy Halloween!
