I'm curious if there will be any place left on product package if it will be covered with labels like "slave free", "enviromently friendly", "green", "ozone friendly", "recyclable", "rain forest friendly", "without genetic modification" and "manufactured locally". I have few other ideas like "made in company with equal gender opportunities". And maybe there is no problem at all, because packaging products is wrong anyway :)

I liked this video. However, change takes time. Every good change starts at the grassroots level. Remember "litter" covered highways in America? That problem has virtually been eliminated. It took years of changing peoples minds. Look at recycling. Virtually all people do it now in one way or another. Keep up the good work to raise the awareness of the people, and change WILL happen in time. Again, good job!! :) :)

When i comes to corperate profit and the greed of the western consumer (you and me),unfortunatly its all to easy to turn a blind eye.

It is an unfortunate way of life, but for "western" civilisation to proceed, this has to take place. I don't agree or like it, but that was the way it had to be for us (westerns) to build our world as it is.

This video only shows one side of the story. I'd like to see the other side - what constraints make it hard or impossible for companies to gain these products without slave labour being involved.

It all comes down to corruption and communism. It's the way it has always been, and the only way it'll ever be, for as long as money is in existence.

Well if we want all the things to be produced without slavery than unfortunately our modern advanced society will be back in stone-age :|

if this happens, every thing would be 100 time pricier and "slaves" will die and with you rotten in hill for taking out their jobs. I mean really some people need money its not like they are working for free. if they have a better thing to do then yay I will support that.

#11 You are ignorant. You know that most of the slaves are children. How dumb can you be? You think they actually work 18 hours a day because they want to?

#10 That's ignorant too. No it won't. Why would it 'go back to' stone age just because we could help people have better lives? Instead of working almost all day they could get more humane working times and more money. Everything can be achieved if the consumers just stopped buying these products until they get better work conditions. The slave handlers want their money too.

whoopee, guilt trip! bring on more, it's the holiday season almost, tell us how we enjoy Christmas while they still work in the dirt and stuff.
If companies knew that people care about this, they would have already made a big deal about it. For example, Apple knew people care about design and fun, flashy, useless apps, so we got the iPhone, the Macs, the app store. But did people stop buying Apple products when Foxconn employees (Apple parts supplier) started KILLING THEMSELVES because of the working conditions imposed by Apple?
You want to save Africa and the pour Asians? Bring Christianity in, they indeed need million dollars Churches (Philippines, China lately) and they are really eager to give away 10% of their (next to nothing) income to the Adventist Church (Africa).
Or bring the sweet capitalism in. The one that makes americans treat animals better than homeless PEOPLE. HUMANS! effin PETA.
Last time the civilized northern hemisphere tried to help the africans they gave them weapons to kill each other with. They enslaved them in the 1700s and they enslave them now.
And instead of hating the rich people for doing this you hate ME for disagreeing that we should help them, which i'm not. I'm just honest with myself and i KNOW i won't be able to live without any of the products presented here. And rather than being a hypocrite i prefer doing nothing. You know who should do something? Those f*cking MTV 16 year olds that b*tch about the color of the new Lexus their African-slave-owner daddy bought them. Or those rap stars bragging about their 22" gold plated rims. Not me. FU, i'm pour!

There is just one little problem the capitalist easily forgets. They actually do make money, even if its a silly sum to you. Without that work/"slavery" they would have nothing. You wonder what exactly does a child without anything to do in these countries? Well, crime, prostitution and so on. They have to make money for themselves and their family.

School is a luxury. Unless you actually live in one of these countries you have no idea how life really is. Just thank your lucky star you were born elsewhere.

Im not saying slavery or child labor is good. Im saying we have to be realists and understand what causes the problem in the first place. What you could do is help them by sending money, a small sum to you is a huge sum to someone in need.

#15 that's a strange way to see things :/ not all the things can be resolved with religion, by the way ... Did you know that in Tangier there was the south forum last month (medays) ... and there was so much empty space in the conference room (in some we where less listeners than speakers) ?
That makes me think that before wanting to apply something to those people ... you should first listen to what they have to say. It's impossible to apply thing that have worked someday somewhere in the past ... because economics and time have changed ... And for now, as was speaking M. Kim from south korea (by explaining how they went in 20 years from nothing to what they are now) : that's totally nothing about religion and more about education and saving investments over time to stabilize the population.
I would love to live in the world as simple as you're speaking about, but definitely it doesn't exists anymore.

Yes, I buy the end product. I can go to Wal-Mart and say "I want slave free products" and they will look at me as if I'm stupid(and I would be) and throw me out of the store. Why do we get the guilt trip if we are not the ones enslaving anyone? Wouldn't the blame fall on the shoulders of those piss poor governments that allow it to happen? Don't wait till it gets to the end of the line and the say I'm the bad guy.

There shouldn't be a little girl trying to tell people how to think and live their lives.

Slavery is bad. Rape is bad. "Drugs are bad, mkay."

The point is, each human has a certain reach or sphere of influence.

Until enough people appear and catch the attention of the world by doing something insane like completely fasting until the children are safe and those people die for what they believe, then nothing is going to happen.
