sweetriot - Sustainable & Responsible Business of the Week


sweetriot (NY NY) makes "all-natural chocolate treats called ‘peaces’, and we work to create a more just and celebrated multicultural world for our next generation." sweetriot gets their all-natural cacao from countries of origin in Latin America and abides by ethical and fair trade sourcing. The finished dark chocolate-covered cacao goodies are packaged in recycled and reusable tins featuring the work of emerging artists. If you don't have local recycling facilities, they encourage you to return your tin to them for recycling.


sweetriot offsets all employee travel and office emissions and offers customers the option to offset CO2 emissions for shipping their order. The company promotes fair HR practices and work-life balance and they also support nonprofits that share similar values and ideals. sweetriot was founded by Sarah Endline in 2005.

Hey! Thanks for the great info. I was browsing through a bunch of green websites and blogs and I came across yours and found it very interesting. There are a bunch of others I like too, like the daily green, ecorazzi and earthlab.com. I especially like EarthLab.com’s carbon calculator (http://www.earthlab.com/signupprofile/). I find it really easy to use (it doesn’t make me feel guilty after I take it). Are there any others you would recommend? Can you drop me a link to your favorites (let me know if they are the same as mine).
