Stand with Slave Free Chocolate

Stand with Slave Free Chocolate

Chocolate is a beloved treat for adults and children throughout the world. Yet in West Africa, the world's biggest cocoa growing region, most cocoa farmers live in extreme poverty, have no running water, no electricity and no schools for their children, and rely on child labor. End child labor in cocoa

All people should be treated fairly, not mistreated or abused, just to make a delicacy for someone else. We want to send a message to big chocolate companys to purchase cocoa from farmers who use fair work practices. So please sign my petition, buy fair-trade chocolate only, and send letters to these companys to inform them of your unhappiness with their disregard for human rights.

Why is this important?

Consumers need to pressure cocoa companies to address child labor and farmer poverty IMMEDIATELY.

In 2010, Green America launched the Raise the Bar! Hershey campaign with allies, demanding that Hershey take steps to address the issue of child labor in their supply chain. Thanks to sustained pressure from Green Americans and Hershey consumers, the two-year campaign culminated with a commitment from Hershey to move to 100% ethically sourced cocoa by 2020.

The Raise the Bar! Hershey campaign demonstrates how powerful a united consumer voice is. We must continue to build on the success of the Hershey campaign, and pressure other leaders in the cocoa industry to make serious commitments to eradicate child labor.
