Resources

We'd love to make it EASY for everyone to educate themselves about the current, tragic realities of modern day slavery, as well as make it easy to be inspired to be part of the solution through shopping ethically.  Below are a variety of resources to educate, motivate and direct you to safe and fair shopping choices, beginning with a safer shopping section and moving on below that to a variety of books, documentaries and anti-slavery organizations.

 

Here is a fun section for you to launch and continue fighting oppression with your pocketbooks. 

We have separated the resources into three categories:

DO GOOD is for companies that actively combat oppression and fight injustice with their work. Shopping from places here, like at DO GOOD SHOP, actively assists people coming out of damaging systems.

DO NOT HARM is a collection of companies who are doing their part to stop harming with their supply chain and business model. They are not per say actively rehabilitating people coming out of tough circumstances but they sure as heck are not furthering the damage with their work, bless their souls.  

Lastly, DO LESS HARM is for companies that are initiating the process or making their best efforts to improve the damaging effects of consumerism. 

This is our quick glimpse rating system. for further research and more in depth rating you can follow this link to see a companies grade as well as find a wealth of information and resources:
