No one, or almost no one, wants to support sweatshop or child labor and most people want to pay a fair price for clothing and other items but how can one know if a given product is made under sweatshop or similar practices? This issue and its challenges have been further highlighted with the string of recent disasters in Bangladesh and the subsequent public discovery of companies that were sourcing their garments from these factories. Buying clothes and other products with ethical sourcing in mind is even more challenging given the complex and murky system of contractors, sub contractors, and still more sub-contractors.
As we source companies and verify their practices to the best of our ability we will add them to this campaign. We'll add the companies that you can trust because they go to great lengths to follow and verify fair practices as well as those companies that you may want to avoid because they are known to use sweatshop or child labor. We'll also add companies that "accidentally" use these poor labor practices because they don't care to investigate where they source their products.
We're just starting out and will add & grow the campaign but we have to start somewhere and we have to start now in order to stop supporting these practices.
Educate yourself on the real cost of our cheap clothing etc.
