U.S. Ethical Shopping Guide

Easter​

Easter.  The holiday when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.  Unfortunately some of the products sold at Easter time are made by exploiting people whom Jesus died for!  Much of the cocoa used to make Easter chocolates comes from West Africa, where trafficked children have been used in production.  And the Easter baskets and toys that fill them are sometimes made in sweatshops.  But below are ethical Easter eggs, baskets, chocolate and more gifts you can buy that show the love of Jesus.

(NOTES: This is a shopping guide so prices and availability can change without notice.  If you buy through some of these links, a small amount may come back to help support the mission of Change the World by How You Shop.)
