ONLY Fair Trade Chocolate will do!

On June 8th, filling up both sides of Broadway in Times Square in 97 degree weather people showed up for "Raise the Bar, Hershey" ...activism at its best. Right in front of the Hershey headquarters!

These were students from all across New York and across the country saying "What do we want? Fair Trade! When do we want it? NOW!" Calls, responses, and posters up and down the streets letting everyone know what Hershey needs to do.

You know what a supporter of fair trade chocolate I am! I take my chocolate very seriously!

Get involved along with Green America and the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.

Help us keep the heat on Hershey by taking action this summer:

1. Take part in our We Want More from our S'mores action
2. Host a movie night and show the Dark Side of Chocolate
3. Collect petition signatures in your community

Now I think I will go eat some more fair trade chocolate.

Celery Street has some brilliant and useful graduation gifts made of recycled bottles, recycled paper, gum wrappers, potato chip bags.....

messenger bags



Graduates of high schools and Universities are sharp, ready for their future, AND looking out for mother earth! According to the Huffington Post bamboo graduation gowns get wrinkled easily but the gowns made of 23 recycled soda bottles are the "green" gown that makes the statement and looks great!

Also, Fox News spoke with a Sierra Club spokesperson, who loved the green gowns but also encouraged those entrepreneurs out there to launch a loan or rental business to reuse graduation gowns with an eco friendly dry cleaning process. Unlike wedding gowns that live in the attic, graduation gowns usually slum it in the landfills.
