Reverse Trick or Treating — Back for the Attack

20th August, 2008 - Posted by Zarah Patriana - No Comments

Forget the trick-or-treating of the past, where kids went door to door collecting chocolate made under abusive conditions. This year, join schoolchildren, teenagers, and anyone else young at heart in uniting to:
  • END poverty among cocoa farmers
  • END abusive child labor in the cocoa industry
  • PROMOTE Fair Trade
  • PROTECT the environment

by giving Fair Trade chocolate back to adults…while trick-or-treating this Halloween. Each chocolate is attached to a card with information about social and environmental justice issues in the cocoa industry and how buying Fair Trade certified chocolate provides a solution.

You can participate in this action by requesting your Reverse Trick or Treating Kits here. The kits are free, but you do have to pay for shipping. Order them now before they sell out.

There’s even more information about this action at the Reverse Trick or Treating website for those who want all the down and dirty deets.

Also wanted to give a shout-out to all the Fair Trade chocolate companies for their generous donations! I’m looking at you Equal Exchange, Alter Eco, Theo Chocolates & La Siembra.

So, start thinking about your costumes and get your Free Kits now before they’re gone gone gone.

Reverse Trick-or-Treating is part of Sweet Smarts, Global Exchange’s national network of kids, parents and teachers whose simple, creative actions to educate and advocate for Fair Trade certified products transform communities and corporations to support small farmers’ efforts to build a better future for their families.
