As many of you have read previously, the chocolate industry is one of which, as responsible consumers, we really need to be conscious. Child labor, big company takeovers, and unfair wages run rampant in the chocolate world. If you missed the previous post, read about my Zero and Hero for the industry!
I wanted to share with you all about a new project that I learned about this week, and a documentary project that really speaks to this topic.
The CNN Freedom PRoject, of CNN International, is releasing a documentary this weekend entitled Chocolate’s Child Slaves, set in the industry farms in the Ivory Coast. It’s going to prove very informative and eye opening for many. Read more about it here.
I believe, on the East Coast, it is showing at 9pm on Saturday night. Anyone want to come over for a viewing? 🙂
If you watch, let me know what you think! Do you agree? Are you surprised by anything?
