Fantastic App

This app is great! Super easy to use and provides quick access to information about forced labor and child labor by country and product. If everyone used this app, we’d be much better informed consumers.

Great interface, info not too useful

This app makes great steps towards the visibility of widespread child labor and forced labor practices around the world. On this note however, I was disturbed to notice the almost intentional lack of the USA in this app!! Using this app will make you feel like there is no forced or child labor in the USA, which allows all of us to ignore the signs and not provide aid.

Another issue is that it’s hard to use the info in this app to avoid brands and products that use child/forced labor. I know that the folks who produced this app can’t necessarily track that, but all the same I was a bit disappointed that I’m still left in the predicament of simply hoping that this cotton shirt wasn’t made with Afghani cotton.

Thanks!!
