Terrapass chocolate - a climate change confection
MA-based chocolate maker, Bloomsberry, has teamed up with TerraPass, a green energy broker, to offer these "Climate Change Chocolate" bars. The wrappers have printed on them 15 tips to reduce your carbon footprint on the world, and in addition have included in their sale price, enough carbon energy credits from TerraPass to offset your carbon footprint for one day.
I don't know much about this carbon offset thing, but does this mean that if we eat a few truckloads of these chocolates that we'll fix the global warming problem? Is this secretly what Al Gore has done to cause the doubling of his girth?
We've seen these bars prominently located near the checkout at our local Whole Foods...so be on the lookout for a Candy Snob review.
These aren't the only socially conscious confection out there. WIRED magazine cofounder Louis Rossetto and some partners have just launched TCHO dark chocolate, which takes the fair trade idea to a whole new level. We'll be covering TCHO in much more detail soon.
You can read more about the global warming confection at the TerraPass website.
