What is the sweetest, messiest, and most enjoyable way to be a part of the movement to make big chocolate companies go Fair Trade? Why, Fair Trade S’mores, of course!
August is here, leaving just a few weeks left of summer to host a barbecue and roast up some Fair Trade S'mores.
Will you make a pledge to use Fair Trade chocolate in your summer s'mores?
My fellow interns and I took the Fair Trade S'mores Pledge after listening to a presentation on Fair Trade on the roof of the Global Exchange office. Even though the San Francisco wind was unrelenting and a few marshmallows got burned, the sweetest part was knowing ALL of the chocolate we used was contributing to improving the lives of cocoa farmers around the world. Wouldn't that be awesome if that was the case for every chocolate bar?
The Fair Trade S’mores action is simple, really. After taking the Fair Trade S'mores Pledge, just grab some marshmallows, graham crackers, Fair Trade chocolate, and follow these steps to ensure our message comes through – that business as usual in the cocoa industry is not acceptable!
And guess what? This Saturday on August 10th is National S'mores Day -- the perfect day to make a statement and pledge to only use Fair Trade chocolate in your s'mores!
