Happy Valentine's Day
Are you giving your sweetheart a sweet gift?
If chocolate is on your list, take the opportunity to use your economic voice for more sustainable chocolate growing and harvesting.
Organic, free-trade and shade grown are all better options for the planet. All are more likely to be grown with reduced pesticide use, to pay growers fairly for their harvest and to protect more of the surrounding forest ecosystem.
