Conservation Chocolate

Original Beans offers three varieties of single-origin chocolate, from Ecuador, Bolivia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Nothing original about that, but what they do is plant a tree in the rainforest where the bar’s ingredients originated.

Each chocolate bar carries a certificate with a lot tracking number. The number tells you where the new tree is located. “By entering the tracking code on the company’s website, customers can not only trace where the cacao beans in their individual bar were grown, but also what their contribution is to the chocolatier’s rainforest replenishment efforts. Hence the company’s mantra: One bar, one tree, go see.”
