Did you know that a lot of clothing is produced in factories where workers are paid poor wages and work in sweatshop like conditions? Some of the clothes may have even been produced using child labour. But there are alternatives!
You can make a difference in the lives of people in the Global South by the everyday choices you make. By purchasing Fair Trade products, such as coffee, tea, chocolate, sugar, bananas, sports balls, t-shirts, you are supporting a system where producers are paid fairly, no child labour is used and environmental standards are upheld.
