There is a story behind each barcode. Most products travel through various parts of the world and through many hands before they reach us. Free2Work provides consumers with information on how products relate to modern-day slavery. Through the site you can learn how your favorite brands are working to address forced and child labor. You can also access in-depth information about industry issues through our Industry pages and news feeds, and learn more about trafficking and supply chains through our blog posts. Free2Work is additionally working to provide Industry Best Practice Reports for brands seeking management resources, and is available for dialogue with companies on an ongoing basis.
The Free2Work mobile application, available on iPhone and Android, equips you with valuable information on companies’ labor standards and production practices at the moment you most need it- while you shop. Free2Work is the first and only app available that allows consumers to scan the barcode of an item and instantly gain access to information on the brand's efforts to prevent child and forced labor. As a consumer, you can use this information to understand what labor practices you may be supporting with your purchases, and to guide your consumption habits toward decisions that positively affect supply chain workers. You can also use Free2Work’s crowdsourcing mechanism to input vital information on products to help build our database. The Free2Work app bridges the gap between consumer products and company supply chains, and enables you to voice your concerns about how workers are treated during the production process via social media. For more ways to get involved in fighting human trafficking visit the Not For Sale or International Labor Rights Forum websites.
Just a hint of hypocrisy there. Gotta love the liberals though.
