Not For Sale, a nonprofit that works to fight modern-day slavery, has recently released a report on major retailers and the systems they have in place to address and prevent modern slavery*. The group has given the retailers grades, and while I didn't see anything really surprising in the report, it is always great to see a chart as detailed as this one to help guide your shopping.
What stores failed/almost failed?
- Abercrombie & Fitch (includes Hollister)
- Armor Holdings
- Bob Barker
- Carter's (owns OshKosh B' Gosh)
- Forever 21 (why does anyone still shop here?!?!)
- Fruit of the Loom
- Quicksilver (owns Roxy)
- Robinson Textiles
- Walmart (owns Faded Glory, No Boundaries, and Simply Basic)
*Note: I'm not sure how I feel about the term "modern slavery," but I'm using it here because that is the language that Not For Sale uses.
