    Fair-trade chocolate challenge

    Fair Trade Marble Brownies


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     venice123 says her daughter, Sydney, and friends, Emma and Haley, are sixth graders at New Roads School in Malibu. The school director offered students community service hours if they participated in CNN's ethical chocolate challenge. 'They attend a school which puts an enormous emphasis on social issues,' she says. 'They love to bake! They thought this would be a fun project to do together and bring awareness to Fair Trade chocolate.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    Almost everybody loves chocolate! But most of our chocolate is made by children in Africa. The chocolate that is not made by children is called Fair Trade Chocolate. So next time you buy chocolate, buy Fair Trade Chocolate! You can get fair trade chocolate at many different places, but we got ours at Whole Foods Market.
