Cloth/Fibers/Textiles—General Your Checklist for Buying Sweatshop- Free Products Green Living Use this checklist as a guide for asking questions where you often shop. If they do not have good answers for these questions, they are not doing enough to stop sweatshops. Does your store know how the workers who made this product were treated? Do you have a list of all the factories around the world that make your products? Does it include the wages and working conditions in each factory? Can you provide me a copy of it? Does your store guarantee that the workers who made this product were paid a living wage? Does your store have a code of conduct that protects human rights and forbids child labor and unsafe conditions in all the factories that make the products you sell? How do you enforce these rules? Are your factories monitored by independent, third-party sources? Are you providing development programs in the communities where your workers live? Are you working with others in your industry to come up with truthful, meaningful labels so consumers can know exploited labor wasn't involved in making your products?
