In an effort to make its chocolate better for humans and for the planet, Purdys Chocolatier has launched a new confection called the 'Clean Water Project Bar.' Available in a delicious milk chocolate and salted butter toffee flavor, the new candy bars provide consumers with more delicious options when it comes to choosing sustainable treats.
The Clean Water Project Bar was created as part of a partnership between Purdys and the Swiss-based Cocoa Horizons Foundation. As part of the partnership, $2 from the sale of each bar will be used to provide greater access to safe drinking water in Ivory Coast cocoa communities. Funds will also be used to support water hygiene training in these communities and the purchase of 35 water filtration systems.
In addition to helping improve access to safe drinking water, the Clean Water Project Bar is also made with 100 percent sustainable cocoa, making it an eco-friendly option for conscious consumers.
