The majority of the brand’s portfolio of 46 products is vegan (note that there are some milk chocolate products in the range so be aware when purchasing) and includes a range of oat milk chocolate bars, 3 oz. chocolate bars, single-serve grab-n-go bars, and baking chips.

“For three decades we have been ‘doing good better’ by crafting premium chocolate and working with meaningful partners to create a positive impact on the world around us,” states Curt Vander Meer, CEO of Endangered Species Chocolate. “To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we wanted to amplify our efforts by announcing additional donations to our charity partners to help further their impressive efforts.”

“Support from Endangered Species Chocolate has been critical to our efforts to save sea turtles around the world, without their funding, our organization would not exist,” said Brad Nahill, president and co-founder of SEE Turtles. “Their support has helped us to support important turtle nesting beaches, address the illegal tortoiseshell trade, reduce plastic on sea turtle beaches, and much more.”
