Our Climate Expert, Jeff Hayward, Shares Hopes for the Global Climate Summit in Lima
As any kid who celebrates Halloween knows, donning a silly costume may be fun, but the best part of Halloween is the candy–chocolate, to be exact. That’s why Halloween is a great time to introduce kids to a farmer who grows cocoa for chocolate production on his Rainforest Alliance Certified (TM) farm in Côte d’Ivoire.
For some parents, the scariest part of Halloween are the sugar highs–and lows–that comes along with trick-or-treating. But this candy-filled holiday also offers a wonderful opportunity to teach your adorable little goblins about how the best treat of all (chocolate, of course) is connected to the rainforest.
Last month in New York City, the Rainforest Alliance participated in the U.N. Climate Summit, an important prelude to the Conference of Parties meeting that will take place in Paris in December 2015, when key players will negotiate on a new climate agreement.
We’re proud of the work we’re doing to conserve and protect water on a large scale. Will you do your part by making some simple changes to your daily routine?
