Have a heart: fair-trade chocolates

heartboxes.jpgWhy should you care if your chocolate is fair trade and/or organic? Because, according to watchdog Global Exchange, chocolate can have a dark side, including environmental degradation and child slave labor, as I note in this month's Think About It column, " Chocolate: The Raw Truth." When shopping for your sweetie this Valentine's Day, be sure to look for eco- and fair-trade chocolates, such as these cute heart-shaped dark or milk chocolate morsels from Divine Chocolate, available at your natural products store. And check out more picks for delectable, organic chocolates.
