Climate change is a serious issue and while talks help, actions speak louder and what better way than to use chocolate. A restaurant in Mumbai has gone a step further than the hospitality industry to tell people to take care of the earth because it is in our hands and they did it with a chocolate ball.     

Recently, five-star restaurant Courtyard By Marriott Mumbai International Airport created ‘The Chocolate Earth”, a large spherical chocolate ball shaped like a globe. The restaurant asked guests to try their gooey desserts that were all made after scraping the globe and with every order, the earth starting coming apart. The twist was that all the guests had to post a picture on Instagram or tweet using #ReviveTheSweetEarth to stop the destruction of the chocolate earth. Every time a post came up they would recreate the destroyed part of the chocolate ball.

 

Sadly, the numbers of social posts were lesser than the desserts eaten by the guests and that left a gaping hole in the chocolate Earth. The video has gone viral and has been circulating since last evening and has got over 49,000 views and over 1,000 shares and clearly has a hard-hitting message.
