I loooove chocolate. No really though. Just ask my husband. I have this habit I can’t seem to shake: if I eat something salty, I immediately have the urge to counter balance it with something sweet. After lunch or dinner, my sweet tooth gets the best of me and I must have at least a nibble of something delectable!
Enter the chocolates of all chocolates: Alter Eco Foods. I ordered two of their decadent flavors: Dark Salted Burnt Caramel + Dark Coconut Toffee and was shocked to discover these two bars were a little salty, and a whole lot of sweet… Hallelujah chorus! Beyond the delicious flavor of these bars, Alter Eco is doing a world of good around the globe.
Get this: Alter Eco sources their ingredients from 24,338 farmers through 9 thriving co-ops who are all paid a living wage. Did you read that?! That is thousands of people who are able to provide for themselves + their families! Alter Eco utilizes 46,694 acres of organic farmland to grow their high quality, ethical ingredients. That’s a lot of pesticide-free acres, people! They have planted 9,265 trees. On top of all of that, their chocolate is gluten-, soy- and GMO-free (learn more about Alter Eco’s sustainability projects here!)
So, friends, go ahead: embrace your sweet tooth by purchasing chocolate that not only empowers precious lives around the world, but also protects our planet!
