Dubble Whammy: two good causes, one bag of chocolate

The Ecologist

Treat yourself to some chocolate and show your support for Red Nose Day with Fairtrade Dubble chocolate coins

This years’ Red Nose Day on Friday 18th March will once again be raising money to help some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in the world, whether they’re in Uganda or in the UK.  If you aren’t getting involved directly, show your support by swapping your Dairy Milk for a bag of Divine Dubble chocolate coins, £1.  An easy way to do your bit, Comic Relief will receive 5p from every bag sold. But your contribution doesn’t end there: every member of the 45,000 strong Kuapa Kokoo cocoa farmers co-operative in Ghana will benefit from your purchase as well.

Dubble was founded in 2000 when Divine Chocolate teamed up with Comic Relief to release a fairly traded chocolate bar for the youth market. Comic Relief has continued to support Dubble since its launch 11 years ago and supports Fairtrade products as part of its commitment to creating a world free of poverty.

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
