The Compassionate Consumer - exclusive to North Magazine

Part 4 in our series looks at child labour in the fashion chain.

Have a look at this excellent webpage on The Guardian new site (UK). Sponsored by Unicef, it is a good overview of the What, Why, Where and What Can Be Done?

Then think about your part. As you look over your wardrobe, what might have come from regions engaging in human rights issues like this? How do you feel about it? What would you do as a choice going forward? (doing nothing is a choice too).

The ILO estimates that 170 million are engaged in child labour, with many making textiles and garments to satisfy the demand of consumers in Europe, the US, and beyond
