Does Your Basket Pass the Easter Bunny Test?
In a 2014 projection, the National Confectioners Association estimated U.S. families would spend more than $2 billion on Easter candy.
That’s a lot of jelly beans—16 million, according to the association.
That same association reported that 89% of their survey respondents said chocolate bunnies should be eaten ears first.
What’s sweeter than a chocolate bunny? These fair trade options for filling your Easter basket while helping others:

Fair trade allows you to connect with a world of hard-working artisans and farmers whose labor is often undervalued in the marketplace. By shopping fair trade, you get quality products and they earn better wages. Even more, our partner Serrv gives a generous donation to CRS for every purchase. The money helps support our programs overseas.
Would the Easter Bunny approve? Oh yes, the Easter Bunny will be very pleased.
