Chocolate is another eco- no no.
Despite the obvious fairtrade issues, there is also all the non-recyclable packaging to consider and emissions from production and transportation.
It is estimated that in Britain we eat, on average, 10.2kg per person a year - multiply that by every person in the UK and you've got a whopper.
But if you just can't ignore that sweet tooth consider fair trade alternatives, or products made closer to home.
Divine Fairtrade Chocolate Company is one of our favorites. Not only is the chocolate simply delicious but the Kuapa Kokoo farmers’ receive a Fairtrade price for their cocoa, but they also own 45% of the company.
