Dear one and all,
Today is a good day.
Today is a day I hope will be remembered as the beginning of the end.
Today Cadbury announced their most popular chocolate bar is going to be TRAFFIK FREE! Woohoo and high 5’s all round!
By making the obvious, simple and ethical choice and switching to fair trade, the demand for trafficked labour took a knock on the head today and that is amazing.
Now there are draw backs, it is only one bar and (as yet) only in the UK and Ireland but it is a start and a step – definitely something to build on and use as an example.
Since STOP THE TRAFFIK’s chocolate campaign began and you – our fabulous supporters – become motivated ACTivists who stood up to do your bit THREE (not one, not two but THREE) massive companies have signed up to provide traffik free chocolate.
Cadburys, Verklade and Swiss Noir are all getting their act together.
We reckon that now it’s time to March my Mars! (www.marchonmars.org coming soon)
Anyway, STOP THE TRAFFIK just wanted to say thanks. Campaigning works and that rocks!
You helped make it happen and we are very grateful.
