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.

Learn About BuyFair from Robin Wright

Advisor to TAF & anti-slavery activist Robin Wright speaks in support of BuyFair, responsible consumerism, and taking a stand against modern-day slavery with the BuyFair App:
let’s do something about it:

How BuyFair Works

With the BuyFair app, you can scan the barcodes of products you wish to purchase to check whether upstream factory or farm workers were exploited or well-treated during the manufacturing process. Companies in the BuyFair database receive A-F grades ranking their supply-chain transparency and integrity. Find alternate brands and products, join our campaign by telling companies you want them to be more ethical, and share your actions with the world.

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.

 

What can an app do to combat modern-slavery?

Consumers have a voice through our retail purchasing power. We need to evaluate what we buy. We must ask “who made my product?” and avoid buying products created with forced or bonded labour. The BuyFair app will include a company rating tool, crowd-sourced research features, the ability for consumers to scan products for grades and demand company transparency where it is missing, and community and campaign features. Petitions and boycotts can be started and circulated on all social networks from within the app as well.
