As seen in Eat Out Magazine, Cadbury Dairy Milk is going to donate 20% of profits from products sold during this year's Fairtrade Fortnight (28th Feb to 13th March) to funding solar projects in Ghanaian cocoa producing communities.
The energy generated can be used to help run health clinics, keeping medicines cool as well as aiding education by providing electric light with which to study by.
Electricity is also safer and more healthy than using the traditional kerosene lamps.
Consumers in the UK can participate by buying certified Cadbury Fairtrade products which include Cadbury Dairy Milk, Buttons and Drinking Chocolate.
Now that sounds like real solar power.
