“Who knew stopping a pipeline could be so delicious”

Denman Island Dark chocolate is helping pave the way for BC First Nations

Denman Island is donating 50 per cent of sales from their Dark Chocolate bars to go toward BC First Nation's legal battle against Enbridge.

Denman Island Chocolate has announced they are donating half the proceeds of their special dark chocolate bar sales to the Pull Together campaign in support of BC First Nations and their fight against Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Pipeline.

“I feel First Nations have been doing all the hard work on this issue and are barring potentially the largest negative impact of the pipeline. its not enough for me to say yah go, but to participate as a business owner since I have a much larger platform to make a statement like this,” Daniel Terry, president and co-founder of Denman Island Chocolate, said.

The BC company partnered with the Sierra Club of BC and RAVEN for the project and plans to make upwards of 15 thousand Simply Dark Pull Together chocolate bars, or as many as people will buy, Terry said.

The funds will go directly towards the legal defence of Gitga’ata, Gitxaala, Haida, Heiltsuk, Kitasoo-Xai’xais, Nadleh Whut’en and Nak’azdli First Nations to support their expensive legal battles with Enbridge.

The bars are being sold online and in BC retail stores for a limited time.

The chocolate campaign started at begging of April and will run through till the end of June.

The Pull Together campaign has already raised more than $350,760 to date. For more information visit pull-together.ca.
