Eat fair trade chocolate at Easter time, urge Cadbury's to go fair trade in America
Many people eat lots of chocolate at Easter time.
Make sure you buy fair trade chocolate.
In England Cadbury's has made a commitment to selling fair trade chocolate.
Here is what Green America has to say: he significance of this fantastic news is that Cadbury is the first major chocolate brand to go Fair Trade with one of its main product lines, one of the goals Green America has been striving towards. Cadbury's announcement proves what Green America has been saying for years: it is viable for a major chocolate bar to go Fair Trade without passing a significant cost increase to consumers. Congratulations on this important victory to all of you who have taken action by buying a Fair Trade Certified™ chocolate bar or writing a letter to bring us to this moment!
