Slavery

Thanks to Jeffrey Zeldman Presents: The Daily Report “21st Century Slaves” for the reminder and link to an article in the National Geographic.

This is a tip of the iceberg. An online extra in the National Geographic reminds us: There are more than 300,000 Indian children working in the carpet industry – most of them slaves.

Like Fair Trade is this an area where individuals can make a difference.
