A Cruelty Free Easter

ethics, Holidays, Uncategorized

As usual, another holiday season has snuck up on us! Easter is just around the corner and as we started putting our White Chocolate Soap on the shelves, we got to thinking about the mass consumption of chocolate that’s about to take place around the world.

We know all too well how easy it is to be sucked into the vortex of brightly wrapped eggs and bunnies that fill supermarket shelves, but after learning a few key things about their ingredients your impulsive egg-buying practises may change drastically! The true cost of chocolate is more than you think…

  1. Many popular chocolates contain unsustainable palm oil, destroying the lives and habitats of orangutans in Borneo. If you haven’t heard about the palm oil issue, read up on it here.
  1. Chocolate is usually made with milk, and there are some sad things you may not know about the dairy industry. Read more here.
  1. 60% of all cocoa is sourced from Ghana and the Ivory Coast, where working conditions are awful and child labour is rife. Most of these workers earn an average of $2.07 a day and have never even tasted chocolate in their life. You can learn more in this informative article.

We love chocolate as much as you do, but is a quick fix for that sweet tooth really worth all of the above mentioned suffering when there are so many delicious alternatives out there? Look for chocolate that is vegan and fair trade certified to be sure that you aren’t contributing to animal cruelty or slave trade. And as for the palm oil issue, there is an app which lets you scan barcodes to find out if they contain palm oil! How easy is that? Get it for your phone in the App Store.

Or, for a really fun and vegan alternative, you could try our White Chocolate Soap made with shea butter and peppermint oil which smells good enough to eat!
