Fair Trade HalloweenFair Traders like yourselves know that most mainstream chocolate comes from cacao plantations in West Africa, where forced child labor has been documented, and we’re working hard to change that.

For the second year, we’re teaming up with Equal Exchange and YOU to Fair Trade Your Halloween this October.

Coming soon, we’ll be launching 31 fun ideas and activities (and a contest!) that will have you drinking Fair Trade coffee, taking a Fair Trade pledge, hosting movie screenings, baking delicious Fair Trade goodies, and giving out Fair Trade chocolates to trick-or-treaters.

Not only that, you’ll soon be able to order a Halloween action kit to help spread the Fair Trade word.

The action kit will include postcards to hand out to friends, discount coupons for Equal Exchange mini chocolates to hand out, decorative papel picado, a Halloween candy bag, a window poster to display your commitment to Fair Trade, a DVD copy of acclaimed documentary The Dark Side of Chocolate, and some Equal Exchange minis to enjoy and show the big chocolate companies that you won’t tolerate forced child labor in your chocolate.
