YOU NEED TO CHECK IN ON YOUR SLAVES

If you’re like the average consumer, there’s a very good chance you have slaves in your workforce. No, not directly, but there are some 27 million people around the world in bondage, including people in the Congo producing coltan for your smartphone and cotton for your shirt in Uzbekistan, OZY reports. U.S. State Department human-trafficking fighters teamed with nonprofit Made in a Free World to push back. Slavery Footprint is a website and an app that, with your handy device, shows you how your consumer choices support forced labor — and how to make informed choices that could eventually benefit more-responsible sourcing.
