Host A Fair Trade Movie Screening and send Hershey a Valentine

IW: Ok, this is a little late.  But you can still start planning a screening as your valentine to the world even if the screening is a little late for Valentine’s Day itself.

You can check out the movie, The Dark Side of Chocolate, tonight Sunday  2/13/11 at 8:30pm at the Cinema Arts Center.


In partnership with the filmmakers and our “Raise the Bar, Hershey!” campaign allies, Green America is organizing a second National Week of Action for Dark Side of Chocolate Screenings from February 4-14, 2011.


Concerned consumers across the country have hosted events in their homes to share the truth about chocolate.  To date, more than 1,300 groups have screened the 45 minute documentary. We are hoping to engage even more people this February, than we did last Halloween.
