Celebrate Labor Day by uniting with others nationwide by doing something meaningful for labor rights!
The summer is winding to a close, and there is no better time than Labor Day weekend to make some Fair Trade s’mores. If you have plans to be out with friends having barbecues and enjoying the nice weather…how about mixing in some Fair Trade s’mores?
Gather around the fire with your graham crackers, marshmallows, some Fair Trade Certified chocolate bars, and petitions demanding that Hershey eliminate child and forced labor from its supply chain and source Fair Trade, which requires farms to abide by international labor conventions.
You can even do it at the office this week, using the microwave! You’ll be an instant hit with all your co-workers!
Please mail us your We Want More from Our S’mores petitions by September 6th.
Fair Trade Chocolate is available from your local store or Global Exchange’s Fair Trade Store. Look for the fair trade logo on brands including Equal Exchange, Sweet Earth Chocolates, Coco-Zen, Alter Eco, and Divine.
