What’s Your Slavery Footprint?

Slavery may be illegal in the United States, but we still buy a lot of stuff from countries where forced labor (i.e., slavery) is the norm. If you use a mobile phone, drink coffee, or wear clothing, chances are good that slaves were involved.

SlaveryFootprint.org gives you an idea how many forced laborers you keep “employed.” The survey is bogged down at the moment, so I couldn’t see my own usage, but you can check out the methodology the site uses to come up with your number.
