Tell the world’s chocolate industry to stop hurting kids, communities and the environment

Halloween is meant to be about kids having fun and stuffing themselves with candy. What if I told you that the same holiday is making hundreds of thousands of children work in cocoa farms and frequently exposing them to poisonous chemicals. Sounds impossible, right?

Sadly, over a million kids work in fields to plant, harvest and process cocoa beans that are often grown with dangerous chemicals. This sad situation has risen in the last ten years and if not checked will continue to rise. This is just wrong and must stop.

So long as they encourage or turn a blind eye to the use of harmful pesticides and other chemicals in cocoa, Cadbury’s and other big chocolate companies that make Dairy Milk, Mars Bars and other treats, are complicit in poisoning children.

These companies call the shots and could easily fix this. At the very least they need to phase out all of the terrible chemicals from their cocoa supply chains.

Let’s make Halloween about children dressing up in fun costumes, not getting covered in poison.

Tell Cadbury’s and the others to stop using pesticides and other chemicals to grow their chocolate.

Big chocolate companies are allowing children to work with potentially dangerous chemicals on cocoa farms in their supply chains. This risks poisoning children, rural communities’ water sources, and the environment. It must stop. We demand you stop allowing poisonous chemicals to be sprayed in the cocoa you source.
