Around Easter time, companies like Cadbury try to play up their wholesome image of a family-friendly chocolate company. The last thing Cadbury wants the public to know, is the dirty secret behind chocolate Easter eggs: the destruction of precious rainforests.

A study from our partner Mighty Earth shows: The cocoa used in Cadbury chocolate is grown illegally in national parks and protected areas all over the world. In some countries in West Africa, more than 90 percent of protected areas, such as rainforests have been raided to make way for cocoa plantations. Elephants, chimpanzees and monkeys have been pushed into tiny, dwindling patches by the chocolate industry’s machines.

But we have a chance to stop this environmental catastrophe. We can expose the truth behind Cadbury’s chocolate and get the company to act. And this is how: our Easter video tells the story of a very special “whistleblower” from inside Cadbury, who just cannot stomach the truth any longer.

We’ve just released an explosive video exposing the truth behind Cadbury's Easter eggs. Can you please help ramp up the pressure by watching and sharing this video now?

Cadbury is one of the UK’s best loved family brands. It's the world’s second-largest confectionery brand. If we can get Cadbury’s parents company, Mondelez, to commit to a no-deforestation policy worldwide, its leadership would take the whole industry in the right direction, and could help protect the habitats and the livelihoods of people all over the world.

We know that Cadbury will act if it feels the pressure. Let’s get them to stop dragging their feet and commit to a global no-deforestation policy.

If you watch and share the video now, you’ll help shine a light on Cadbury's shady business just before Easter.
