Sweet Smarts

How to celebrate freedom this July 4th:

S’mores with Fair Trade chocolate?  Oh, yeh!

S’mores with chocolate grown with forced child labor?  Not so much.

Be part of the Fair Trade s'mores revolution.

Rock your picnic, barbeque or campfire with gooey, chocolatey Fair Trade s’mores


You'll send a message to Hershey that it's gotta get child and forced labor out of its cocoa.

And you'll enjoy your s'mores so much more with chocolate that frees kids from child labor and empowers cocoa farmers to free themselves from poverty.

During your s’more-fest, be sure to:

  1. Collect signatures on petitions asking Hershey to stop using child labor and become Fair Trade Certified
  2. Count the s'mores you eat and register them online
  3. Take pictures and videos of yourself with our s'mores poster and email the youtube link or your photos to fairtrade@globalexchange.org

More We Want More from Our S'mores ideas: 

  • Plan a gathering for friends, co-workers, classmates, campers, congregation members, etc anytime between now and Labor Day. Event planning checklist available here. Check out this video to see how much fun you'll have.
  • Screen the Dark Side of Chocolate. This 2010 documentary, available for just the cost of shipping, exposes child and forced labor in the cocoa fields.
  • Involved in a summer camp? Know anyone who is? Click here for suggestions from a camp counselor on how to make s’mores time a teachable moment, with We Want More from Our S’mores
