Not many of us consider the human cost of the goods we purchase and use every day. The sad reality is that many of the items we buy and love are using slave labor to turn a profit somewhere in the chain. This holiday season, let’s spread the word and examine our buying behaviors from raw materials to finished products.
Take the survey at http://slaveryfootprint.org/ and find out how many slaves work for you. Based on data from the Trafficking in Persons Report, The Freedom House index and others, the survey assigns a score to your answers — in essence, the number of slave workers used to create the products you use.
And after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, join us for #GivingTuesday and set the commercialism of the season aside. Help us end modern slavery and give the gift of freedom.
