DO YOU OWN STUFF MADE BY SLAVES? HERE'S HOW YOU CAN BE PART OF THE SOLUTION TO ENDING MODERN DAY SLAVERY
I'm probably sounding like a broken record by now always preaching about how consumers can make a difference in the world just by not being part of the supply chain that's associated with negative outcomes. I ask you not to buy ivory because the demand is what makes poachers kill animals. When you buy from companies who buy their products from places that make the product with slave labor, you're part of why slavery exists.
But if you tell your retailers that you only want slave free products and if you only buy products from retailers only choosing to sell slave free products, then you're going to make a difference in this world. Commit to buying products that are made by people who are fairly compensated and fairly treated. I also try choosing good-for-the-environment products aka 'eco friendly' and 'green' products. The point is that we can all take part in making the world a better place every single time we spend money. Pass along this video to help raise the collective consciousness about where and how all products are made. Get people thinking .
