River-Sea Chocolates partners with small-scale growers who use sustainable farming methods that prevent deforestation and maintain bio-diversity, purchasing beans above fair trade prices and verifying farms do not employ children.
Many of the farms are too small and remote to afford international certifications like Fair Trade or Organic, but they live by these principles in their business practices. Cacao farming and direct trade empowers community development and provides incentive for natives of tropical countries to work in an environmentally friendly way, maintaining natural forestry and Earth's oxygen. Cacao trees can be planted in the shade of existing jungle canopy, discouraging logging or other devastating options that exploit vital habitats and contribute to species extinction.
Your purchase supports educational programs for litter clean-up and prevention in the Amazon River Basin.
