Global Labor & Our favorite Products

They [our favorite products, like cell phones, cotton, chocolate] present us with a huge moral and ethical dilemma. I know that none of us want to be accessories after-the-fact of the human rights abuse of a global supply chain.

What can you do to support the well-being and dignity of workers around the world? Go to the Fair Labor Association, and visit the FLA Affiliates page. You’ll find companies that are “committed to protecting workers’ rights by promoting adherence to international labor standards.” There are quite a few sports clothing companies listed. The only technological company affiliated, so far, is Apple. (I’m glad!)
