Take the Slavery Footprint survey about your lifestyle and the products you own.

The Slavery Footprint application can tell you how many slaves work for you, by showing you the regions where forced labor was used in the production of the foods you eat and the products you buy. The survey asks different questions about your lifestyle and consumer habits, and then works out your number based on the answers you give. Wired explains how it does this:

The app contains information on over 400 products broken down into their raw materials, from borax and beryllium to coffee and cornstarch. Then, based on vetted data from the Trafficking in Persons Report, The Freedom House index and three others, it assigns each product with a score — in essence, the number of slave workers used in the gathering and combination of the source materials.
