We all buy things every day. But where are the things we purchase made?
Who are they made by? What types of conditions do these people work in? And how much are they paid?
We’d all like to think that the goods we spend our money on are manufactured by fairly-paid, free adults with good working conditions. Sadly, this is not always the case. From your T-shirt to your iPhone, everything we buy carries the story of the people who made it.
There is so little available information about how, where and under what conditions consumer goods, sold in Australia, are produced. The Anti-Slavery Australia is in the early stages of developing resources to enable Australian consumers and companies to make more ethical choices about their purchasing habits.
