Because elephants hate chiles, and we like elephants.

It’s that time of year when we all start thinking about philanthropy (right???) and I love when I can help others by doing what comes naturally to me. Enter Elephant Pepper hot sauces.

Apparently, elephants hate chile peppers (who knew?), so farmers in Africa plant chiles around their fields to deter elephants from trampling the crops. The peppers then are made into hot sauces and spice mixes, which fund elephant conservation and agricultural research.  They even have great-looking gift packs, if you’re in holiday shopping mode.

Besides, if you buy some, then you have an excuse to make these great hot-sauce cocktails
