110 – Just Choices- Is it Too Complicated?

In this episode of the Ending Human Trafficking podcast, GCWJ Director Sandra Morgan and Board Member Dave Stachowiak discuss our responsibility as consumers to make just-oriented choices with our purchasing power. Making just choices is a practical way to take a stand individually and collectively against forced labor and child labor. The simple starting point is to stop and think about the items we are buying, and not just be swayed by the “best deal”. We can unknowingly be perpetuating the demand for child or forced labor when we are only considering price and not the ethical reliability of the company’s supply chain.

Sandra shares a few resources we can use from the Bureau of International Labor Affairs researched based reports that help us know how to decipher what products are slave free and which are not. Tune in to this episode to become educated on the resources available to help guide you to make responsible choices as a consumer.  YOU can be a part of changing the quality of life for another human being with your just choices.
