Online Plug-In Helps Shoppers Avoid Items That Use Child Labor
An easy way to shop ethically online by hiding products that exploit children.
The foundation ‘Aktiv Gegen Kinderarbeit' (Active Against Child Labor) in Germany, has created a plug-in that helps online shoppers avoid brands that use child labor. After installing the plug-in aVOID, the program works in the browser and automatically hides a product that's associated with the exploitation of children.
aVOID works with popular online shops like Target, Google Shopping, Amazon, and Asos, and works in the U.S., France, Germany, and the U.K. It uses data provided by Earthlink and ensures that the information is reliable by providing regular updates.
