News Speaking out against trafficking

Published on May 5th, 2015 | by CCAT

Debate about Moral Buying

The Modern Slavery Bill included reference to removing slavery from the supply chains. However, details of how this is to be achieved are still unclear. Will you give some thought about the following and feed back your ideas?

  • The question of what to buy and where to buy it raises many different considerations. Consumers routinely encounter a range of competing claims on their moral and financial resources, including whether or not to support local producers, boycott tax-dodging multinationals, or buy fair trade products. These choices are rarely straight forward. Is a canvas shopping bag made in a Bangladeshi sweatshop a better ethical choice than a plastic bag? How do we reconcile differences in standards of living and slavery working conditions when it comes to deciding what is morally acceptable in international supply chains?
