Another way to navigate the jewelry companies is to look for diamonds that are certified by the Kimberley Process, which is an African process developed specifically with the intent of curtailing African blood-diamond mining

Modern-Day Slavery Part II

by admin on July 29, 2011 in Slavery-free, Vendor with 1 Comment

Usually wedding planning vendors will be licensed companies who offer transparency in their businesses and who run on referrals. The risk of using slave labor is too great if they truly want to be reputable and successful within the wildly profitable wedding industry. Where you do run the risk of interacting with companies who use slave labor, however, are with the non-vendor related purchases and services you pay for.

There are 30 million slaves worldwide today. Whether a family treacherously laboring under the duress of impossible financial obligations, whether a woman shipped off to a different country as a prostitute without legal documentation under the guise of being hired for a restaurant job, whether an orphan being abducted from the streets and forced to work for less money than he can live on, whether a suburban adolescent being drugged and filmed as leverage for someone to pimp her, or whether a child kidnapped by soldiers and threatened into killing for them, slavery is rampant. It is real. It can happen to anyone.
