Chocolate and the Slave Industry

I recently watched a saddening documentary about the chocolate industry and slavery. Young children are taken from their homes (stolen in many cases) and forced to work as cacao bean farmers. They are not paid, are not able to go to school, and essentially have their entire childhood ripped from them, all so that the rich can eat chocolate. I have posted the documentary below, and I hope you get a chance to watch it. I have also posted some "Fair Trade" chocolate companies below. In fact, many 'vegan' friendly chocolates are "Fair Trade", but you can always go for the dark chocolate variety as well.

Fair Trade Chocolate Companies:


Green and Blacks


Organic Fair 

Divine Chocolate

Endangered Species Chocolate

Bonvita Chocolate (Rice Milk available)
