Eat Chocolate, Save the Rainforest

Sort of. I mean, if you eat this particular, delicious chocolate bar then no one can say that you’re not doing your part. Kallari produces organic single origin chocolate from cocoa grown and harvested by a farm cooperative in the Ecuadoran Amazon. And before you get squeamish about dropping five bucks for a bar, you should know that 100% of the profits return to the co-op, allowing the indigenous famers to continue to support sustainable development and community programs for health and education. You can choose from three bars: 70% cacao, 75% cacao, and 85% cacao.

Read more about the Kallari association and their chocolate on their website.
Where to find it: As far as I know, they are only currently available at Whole Foods or online.
