mmmmMars bars in Australia!

Last week (Monday 28th February 2011) MARS in Australia announced their lovely MARS bars in Australia will carry the Rainforest Alliance logo as of June 2011.

This followed a campaign where STOP THE TRAFFIK Australia sent 30,000 postcards to supporters who then urged MARS to roll out a product that uses cocoa certified as ‘traffik free’. The World Vision ‘Don’t Trade Lives’ campaign also lobbied MARS for this outcome. So all in all, it is a great campaigning success!
