Easy Ways to Align the Holidays with Your Values
Westview Corner Grocery | December 7, 2019
Celebrate the holidays and live your values this holiday season with Fairtrade. When many of our favorite things are grown thousands of miles away, we are often detached from the farmers that grow the goods that we buy and the conditions under which they work.
Fairtrade works to support and empower the farmers and workers from the production stage through to the shelving of products at your local supermarket. So, when you see the Fairtrade mark, you know you’re making a small impact in another family’s life.
From festive treats to relaxing teas, here are easy ways to align the holidays with your belief in Fairtrade.
ENDANGERED SPECIES CHOCOLATE
Endangered Species chocolate bars and truffles are the perfect gift for the office, family, or friends. Fill your holiday candy bowl or gift bag with satin smooth chocolate truffles with decadent caramel. These are the gifts that truly keep giving, with 10% of profits donated to environmental causes.
TONY’S MILK CHOCOLATE BAR
Fairtrade from the start, Tony’s Chocolonely Milk Chocolate Bar is not just a classic milk chocolate bar. It is the first bar Tony’s ever made back in 2005. The screaming red wrapper is meant to attract attention to the company’s main mission – 100% slave-free chocolate. Pop it in a gift bag and strike up a conversation about why securing the rights of marginalized farmers and workers in the Global South is important to you.
The opulent deep flavor and smooth texture of Divine Chocolate’s bars delivers the ultimate chocolate experience. Cocoa farmers in Ghana receive 44% of the profits at Kuapa Kokoo, making it extra sweet!
ORGANIC INDIA’S TULSI TEA
Organic India’s fans will love this delightful and healthy range of Fairtrade Tulsi teas, made with organic ingredients and a clear conscience. Tulsi is called the “’Queen of the Herbs” due to its health benefits so bring a refreshing pitcher of any of Organic India’s Fairtrade to your next gathering.
NAVITAS ORGANIC CACAO POWDER
Navitas Organics’ best-selling Cacao Powder is easy to use for holiday baking: simply substitute this healthy, natural cocoa 1:1 into any recipe that calls for baking cocoa. Great in baked treats, smoothies, homemade chocolates, and hot chocolate, the holiday options are endless.
