Easter is only a few hops away and it's a great time to relax, get out in nature and spend time with loved ones. Food plays a central role over this period so we’ve put together some tips so that your seafood and chocky treats aren’t the only good things about your Easter!
Harm Free ChocolateEaster egg hunts are an integral part to the Easter holiday, meaning that chocolate treats are an exciting aspect of celebrating. Palm oil is often used to make chocolate and is incredibly destructive. Palm oil plantations, primarily in Malaysia and Indonesia, are responsible for deforestation and threats to local environments and animals populations - particularly orang-utans.
The simplest thing you can do to minimise any harm is to choose chocolate products that either use 100% Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO) or that are palm oil free. See list below for some hints on what to look for.
