Whether you choose to go vegan to advocate for animals, help the environment, or improve your own long term health, the reasons to avoid foods with animal byproducts are endless. But why not go one step further? 

Achieving next level sustainability may seem daunting, but there are so many products out there that are vegan AND Fairtrade certified. When you purchase Fairtrade, you’re not only ensuring farmers and workers are getting a fair deal. You’re promoting gender equality, combating child labor, and supporting eco-friendly farming practices.

    Ben and Jerry’s Non-Dairy Pints

    When a close friend of mine went vegan a couple years ago, our frequent ice cream outings during the summer came to a sudden halt… until Ben and Jerry’s saved the day. With their classic flavors still up for grabs, the delicious creations use almond milk and sunflower butter instead of their usual dairy ingredients. Try their vegan Cherry Garcia, Peanut Butter Half Baked, Chocolate Fudge Brownie and more! Is your mouth watering yet? Mine is.

    Fran’s Gray Salt Thins

    Fran’s Chocolate has over 20 vegan products to choose from, but our favorite is the Organic and Fairtrade 66% dark chocolate with a sprinkle of gray sea salt. If you’re like me and you crave something sweet and salty 24/7, this treat will be sure to satisfy your taste buds in a heartbeat. The best part? It’s completely vegan and Fairtrade certified.

    Oat Milk Chocolate Bars

    Oat milk is one of my favorite milk alternatives. It’s creamy sweetness brings out the natural flavors of any treat, especially chocolate. That’s why these chocolate bars from Endangered Species Chocolate are definitely worth a try. With flavors like dark chocolate and sea salt with almonds, you’ll be sure to love this vegan delight.
