where does your stuff come from?

how many times have you looked a label of an item you are going to purchase and wondered...where did this come from and who made it?

oh, never.

yeah me either until this year. but now that i know, what do i do?

ill be the first to admit it is "hard" to buy slave free items.

yes it is more expensive to buy slave free.
yes it is more work to buy slave free.
yes it is inconvenient to buy slave free.

but its worth it.

recently the Department of Labor published a "list of goods produced by child labor and/or forced labor". to make it a little easier for you here are a few screen shots of exactly where some of your things are coming from.
