Green Chocolates

Did you ever think that eating chocolates could help the environment? Well, a groundbreaking chocolate company is making that a reality. Chicago based Vosges Haut-Chocolat is producing its organic chocolates by renewable energy. As a certified organic manufacturing facility, this sweet company does not release synthetic pesticides into the environment which are likely hazards to local wildlife. Their organic farming techniques don‘t disrupt the flow of the local eco-system. To add to the already impressive list, Vosges’s boutiques in Chicago, New York and Las Vegas are all powered by wind! Oh, and it doesn’t end there, this gourmet chocolatier is also certified by the Rainforest Alliance which promotes sustainable cocoa farming practices to maintain a healthy environment and fair labor laws. Even their packaging is made from 100% recycled material. Green enough for ya?

Scope out these special Valentine’s Day packages from Vosges.
