Fair and square for Halloween

Today I am handing out 20 of these chocolate bars to Haligonian trick or treaters, one for each family that shows up at our doorstep.

The chocolate is Fair trade organic from trusted Just Us!, a Nova Scotian worker-owned coop that maintains close relationships with the cocoa and sugar cane farmers who grow and harvest the ingredients for these yummy products.

A fairer world is possible, where children in other countries can go to school and/or play, not slave away on plantations, where farmers earn a decent living wage to feed their families and regular people from all countries bypass the purely profit-driven “major brand” corporations (like Nestle, Mondelez, Mars, Hersheys, Ferrero, etc).
