Where do we begin with this incredible company? We met the makers behind River Sea Chocolates, Krissee and Mariano, in our past life of running a local butcher shop & market and we were always in awe of their dedication to sustainability, not to mention their delicious, delicious chocolates.
River-Sea Chocolates is based in Chantilly, VA and partners with small-scale growers who use sustainable farming methods. Cacao farming and direct trade empowers community development and provides incentive for natives of tropical countries to work in an environmentally friendly way, maintaining natural forestry and Earth's oxygen. Cacao trees can be planted in the shade of existing jungle canopy, discouraging logging or other devastating options that exploit vital habitats and contribute to species extinction.
Your purchase supports educational programs for litter clean-up and prevention in the Amazon River Basin.
Krissee and Mariano also invested their life savings into ensuring the transport of the cacao beans is as environmentally friendly as possible by reviving USA’s over 100 year old sail cargo trade by bringing cacao beans via wind powered cargo ship! Like, WHAT?! That's incredible!
