Is Your Easter “Sustainable” And “Ethical”?
That’s right, it’s time again for “let’s see how the Warmists/envirowackos can attempt to ruin a holiday”
Happy Easter! Don’t forget to buy ethical chocolate. When you’re biting the head off a chocolate bunny this weekend, the last thing you want to be thinking about is whether your sweet treat was the product of child slave labor. But, this is going to be a bummer, it probably is. Well, I mean, it’s definitely possible. Have you checked where your chocolate is from? You should!
Easter egg fans can check the sustainability of the chocolate eggs this year following a campaign to rate the UK’s top brands on their use of sustainable palm oil.
Palm oil is used in a surprisingly large number of products from soap to margarine. Rainforests are often cleared in countries such as Indonesia and in the Congo Basin in Africa to make space for large palm oil plantations.
These crazies are always trying to ruin every holiday, especially the religious ones…..hey, wait a minute, these are issues I agree with! And not to be too preachy, you should too. I’ve written many times about the use of palm oil and how forests are cleared and wildlife, including orangutans, are intentionally killed to create palm oil farms, mostly in terms of how palm oil is used as a biofuel. I haven’t touched on the use of child slave labor for chocolate production, but these are all real issues, one of environmentalism and one of human rights.
Meanwhile, how does Google celebrate Easter?
On Easter Sunday, Google is honoring the birthday of the late labor organizer Cesar Chavez by placing a Chavez portrait within the middle “o” of the Google logo that appears on the homepage of the popular search engine.
