This Halloween, support green businesses that change the way chocolate is made and that prioritize people and the planet. Why? Child labor and deforestation continue to be ingredients in big name chocolate bars. Green America has created a chocolate scorecard that you can use to easily spot chocolate brands making chocolate better and reforming the industry. The scorecard is heavily based on efforts to combat child labor, but includes deforestation, one of the many issues facing the cocoa industry. Many of the companies on the list are also Certified Green Business Members of Green America, and all of these chocolates are available for purchase online.
