The fact of the matter is, the brands that we know and love, they just don't know where all the materials come from in their products. What about the cotton in that t-shirt? The tantalum in that smart phone? The beans in that cup of joe?
That's where you find the slaves. In the fields. In the mines. In the raw materials processing.
It's the supply chain that enslaves more people than at any other time in human history. They're working for you.
Operated by Made in A Free World, the Slavery Footprint challenge encourages users to learn about goods commonly produced with slave labor. In order to create individual scores, Made in a Free World first chose to investigate slave labor usage in the supply chains of more than 400 of the most popular consumer products.
The total Slavery Footprint represents the number of forced laborers that were likely to be involved in creating and manufacturing the products you buy. This is determined based on information regarding the processes used to create these products as well as investigations of the countries in which these stages of production take place for known slave labor (within these specific processes.) This number is compiled from multiple individual product scores.
