While doing some research into what makes a great website, I stumbled across slaveryfootprint.org and took the survey that is core to the site. I was pretty shocked at the result and started to feel a little guilty about my recent purchase of an iphone to add to all of the other 'things' in my life. Having seen reports about the Foxconn suicides in China in recent years and actually having personally seen some pretty shocking manufacturing practices on a business trip to China (I am not just picking on China, its just that I have seen it first hand), I realise that there is no doubt a real human impact resulting from my consumption.
Go to slaveryfootprint.org and take this survey. It really makes you think. Its also a fantastic website.
