Today, we hosted our first ever fair trade chocolate tasting and movie showing at Oglethorpe University. Due to being snowed out last week, and scheduling the movie at a popular time for students to be in class, we were a little worried about attendance. However, we had a great showing of students that were very interested to learn more about child slavery in the chocolate industry! We showed the documentary, The Dark Side of Chocolate, which was received well. Additionally, we raffled off a gift basket (pictured) that gave people an opportunity to learn about a variety of fair trade brands.
All in all, a great start to #fairtradefebruary
