Modern Slavery Affects Us All
Who Makes Your Stuff?
When buying a product, have you ever wondered who made it or what their working conditions were?
Most of our everyday products – from the food we eat to the clothes we wear – are packaged or made by people who work in indecent conditions. Some are even produced by people trapped in slavery. At least some of the electronics you use or the toys your children play with were likely manufactured using forced or bonded labour. The BuyFair app makes it possible for all of us to help make this change.

Let’s Do Something About It:
How BuyFair Works
The app allows users to demand that corporations be transparent about their supply chains. Once corporations disclose manufacturing information, they are graded to assess the risk of their products having been made with forced or bonded labour. These grades, publically available on the app, allow users to avoid buying products made unethically. Brands with failing grades or those that decline to respond to requests for transparency can be boycotted or pressured to do better.
The BuyFair app encourages ethical shopping. Learn which brands guard against supply chain slavery and which do not. Browse through ratings in apparel, chocolate, and electronics before making a purchase. Join the movement by scanning product barcodes to find out whether companies are transparent and fair, and help our research by petitioning those that are not.
