Tell Hershey’s to Go Fair Trade and Organic

Boy working in cocoa fieldsFor years, the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) has been taking action, along with the International Labor Rights Fund to stop abusive child labor in the cocoa industry in West Africa. As a result of the constant pressure, major chocolate companies such as Mars and Cadbury have recently agreed to stronger labor and environmental standards in the production of the cocoa they use.

But one iconic US brand is lagging behind—and they need to hear from you!

Please join the OCA and thousands of people across the country in calling Hershey to urge them to switch to fair trade and organic-certified cocoa and sugar—for all of their products. You can do so here: http://capwiz.com/grassrootsnetroots/callalert/index.tt?alertid=13603421
