Cadbury Dairy Milk – the leading chocolate bar in the UK – has announced plans to begin using Fair Trade cocoa this summer. This is great news for cocoa farmers, which will boost Fair Trade Certified™ chocolate up to a full 15 percent of the chocolate market in England.
Please join us in celebrating this victory for Fair Trade, and at the same time, help us use this moment as an opportunity to persuade Cadbury to do better in the US.
Tell Cadbury thanks for taking this step in the UK – and ask them to expand Fair Trade in the USA!
Especially now, in the spring, when Cadbury's popular chocolate eggs are on sale across the country, Cadbury needs to hear from thousands green Americans who want to know that none of their chocolate purchases are supporting exploitative child labor in the cocoa industry.
When you sign on to GreenAmerica.org's letter to Cadbury, you'll not only be thanking them for their new green step overseas, but also pushing for more Fair Trade options here in the States.
It's great that a conventional chocolate company has learned what we as Green Business Network™ members already know – it's possible to pay a fair wage and support workers across the supply chain without passing prohibitive costs along to the consumer. Now it's time for Cadbury to apply what it has learned in Europe to its operations here in the US. Please take action with us today, and share this story with your friends.
And...... share this video with friends so that they understand why fair trade is soooooo important and how much better people's lives can be if we all support fair trade products.
