slavery footprint


I subscribe to The Vine on Facebook for a daily dose of music, fashion, entertainment and current affairs. Today they had a great article about assessing your slavery footprint. You see, most of us aren't even aware of how many people have been enslaved in order to produce the clothing, cosmetics, food and services that we consume on a daily basis. You can read the article here. Website slaveryfootprint.org is a challenging and informative website that provides a survey to assist you in calculating approximately how many enslaved people contribute to your lifestyle. I thought that being a fair trade conscious person, I would fair reasonably well in this survey, but boy was I surprised with my results! So I challenge you to visit the website, answer the survey questions and most importantly, ask what you can do to fight the war to end slavery!
