Put the Pressure on Hershey

This is a great summertime workplace event! Join us in support of Fair Trade and put pressure on Hershey to clean up its supply chain. Green America’s campaign "We want more from our s'mores" is a way to join with thousands to take a stand for Fair Trade. Read more for the plan:

  1. fairtradesmores400Register your s'mores -- Between now and the week of Labor Day, we'll cumulatively total how many Fair Trade s'mores have been made across the United States. (You can find vegan marshmallow recipes here.)
  2. Send us Hershey petitions -- At your s'mores event (or any event) collect signatures demanding better from Hershey. Send them in, and we'll forward them on to Hershey at the end of the summer.
  3. Send us a photo -- We're also collecting a "photo petition" for Hershey. Print out these signs (or make your own), and send us a photo asking Hershey to go Fair Trade.
  4. Host a Dark Side screening -- The film The Dark Side of Chocolate takes you behind the scenes and onto the cocoa farms of the Ivory Coast where children are trafficked to work harvesting cocoa beans. Share this film in your community to raise awareness of the problems in the chocolate supply chain.
