Even though I know that there are 27 million slaves in the world today, it still comes as a surprise when I realize that they work for me. There are items that I use every day that are frequently made by slaves. Yesterday, I calculated my Slavery Footprint and found out that 45 slaves work for me. It's a startling and heartbreaking thought.
Do you know how many slaves work for you? Find out here and let me know in the comments. Tomorrow, we'll investigate what we can do to reduce our slavery footprints.
