Child labor – consumers are responsible

Washington Post published an article today about child labor in the cocoa farms of West Africa – CHILDREN. Consumers are responsible for supporting products and supply chains that do not / cannot promise conflict and child-labor free outputs.

Purposeful consumption – or responsible consumption – is a new priority for me. If you purchase the product you are responsible for the intended AND unintended consequence of that product’s full supply chain. Elective ignorance no longer removes culpability. You buy it, you’re responsible. We all need to consumer carefully … purposefully, responsibly.
