How many slaves work for you?

It sounds confronting, and it is.

Slavery Footprint is a website calculating the number of forced labourers that were likely to be involved in manufacturing the products you buy.

It’s determined by asking a set of 11 questions varying from where you live, what you eat, what products you own and more.

The tool is an initiative set up by Made In A Free World, an organisation aiming to help put an end to slavery.

It's a problem which cannot be solved through charity alone; we as consumers need to make better choices. With over 29 million people living under these conditions today, change is long overdue.

You can take the survey here, and join the conversation to abolish slavery for good.
