Sign a Petition!

Through our work aimed at stopping deforestation for chocolate worldwide, people just like you are getting involved to stop forest destruction. Together with other NGOs, we have succeeded in collecting nearly 1 million signatures on a variety of petitions targeted at the chocolate industry on the issues of deforestation.

These petitions have helped us – are are continuing to help us – change the industry and governments. So please sign on!

Meanwhile, over 1 million people signed over 100 petitions on ending human rights violations in chocolate – especially eradicating child labor, which is a serious problem. 2.1 million kids work in chocolate still today.  We ask you to sign any one of these petitions that moves you.

For this wonderful day of the #CocoaCountdown, we’re asking YOU to help contribute to the cause by signing one of the petitions… or more, if you want 🙂
