My world is fueled by chocolate and coffee. Both are products often cultivated at great expense to people and the environment, so I make an effort to find sustainable companies to support when I vote with my chocolate and coffee buying dollars.
When I buy chocolate, I aim for quality over quantity. The awesome thing about really good chocolate is that quality chocolate is satisfying in small amounts. So while I may pay a little more for a bar of high quality sustainable chocolate, it lasts longer, and I can curb my cravings with fewer calories.
Dagoba has been one of my favorite chocolate brands for a long time. And now Dagoba Chocolate’s full line is being made with cacao from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. Dagoba tells me that carrying the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal means:
- High standards of environmental stewardship throughout the entire process of growing and cultivating cacao
- Economic sustainability for cacao-producing farms
- Safe working conditions and fair wages for farm workers
- Access to housing, education and healthcare for workers and their families.
Dagoba sent me this delicious chocolate to review, but my opinions are my own, and I regularly buy Dagoba chocolate.
