Happy Sustainable Valentine's Day from BLAB!

From February 12 -14, BLAB and the Fair Trade Coalition will be co-sponsoring a special "Sustainable Valentine's Day" candy sale.

BLAB will be selling Ring Pops to raise awareness about conflict (blood) diamonds in Africa – the politics involved, the role of the diamond industry, the victims of the illegal diamond trade, and what consumers can do to ensure that diamonds are purchased from “clean” sources.

Proceeds from the Ring Pop sales will be donated to the Prosthetics Outreach Foundation, a rehabilitation program that provides prosthetic limbs to amputated victims in Sierra Leone.

Make sure to stop by Benson and buy a Ring Pop! And don't forget to join Facebook group: POP the Question! Is Your Diamond Conflict Free?
