CHILD COTTON LABOR
The United Nations Children’s Fund is a United Nations (UN) program headquartered in New York City that provides humanitarian and developmental assistance to children and mothers in developing countries.
Labor exploitation accounts for approximately two-thirds of the $39 billion child trafficking industry, and consumers contribute to the demand for labor exploitation with our daily purchases. The cotton in our clothes, sheets and towels, for example, is considered a worst offender when it comes to child trafficking. — Unicef
“Consumers love cotton. It’s soft, comfortable and natural.
But cotton has a dark side: child labor and forced labor is often
used to produce it.”
