Labor Trafficking, Fair Trade and Conscientious Consumers

Where can I find traffick-free goods?

The best place to start is Google, along with our Ethical Shopping Guide. While each industry has it's own certification standards, terms such as Fair Trade Certified, Global Organic Textile Standard, and a general transparency in the production and distribution of goods are positive indicators. Ethical goods don't exploit labor, animals, or the environment at any point in the supply chain. We have too many favorites to list all of them here, but if you'd like a few great vendors to get you started, check out great companies we follow on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Here's a great article written by one of our volunteers about her realization that her shopping choices were contributing to trafficking, and how she went about changing those habits. It's a great place to start on your journey to living consciously.
