You're Wearing Child Labor
The horrible truth about your clothing
Child Labor used for your clothing
First Person Information
What can be done?
Because most cotton producing countries use slave labor, it is very hard and very expensive to boycot the cotton. So you should show that you are angry at child labor in cotton. If you really want to boycot, buy only cotton that was grown in the US. Or there are some companies that only use fair trade cotton. These include Everlane, Voon, or Good and Fair. Other than that there is not much you can do. Though you are not alone. When it became public the amount of forced labour and child labour in Uzbekistan, the west put a boycott on Uzbekistan cotton. Though that did not help much because the government of Uzbekistan is greedy and just made the farmers farm more cotton and export more cotton for the governments profit.
