1. F.E.P.’s Chocolate List and Clif Bar Campaign Make Headlines on The Kind Life 

Earlier this month, The Kind Life blogger Katie Gillespie made Food Empowerment Project’s chocolate list and Clif Bar campaign the sole focus of her blog. Not only does she enthusiastically promote Food Empowerment Project, she encourages people to only buy chocolate from the F.E.P.-approved list and asks her fellow Kind Lifers to sign the petition to get Clif Bar to come clean about their chocolate sourcing. Feel encouraged tocheck out Katie’s post and leave her some positive feedback!
