An app tells you if the clothing brands you buy comply with workers' rights

2016-04-02

A few days ago, the Pope asked that each person makes an effort to help the victims of human trafficking.

POPE FRANCIS
February 7, 2016
"I am thinking especially about all of the women, men, and children! You need to make every effort to end this crime and intolerable shame."

Many of these modern slaves are people who make clothes. In order to find out if the clothing we find in stores was made in a way that respects human rights, there is this application: "Good on you.”

It analyzes more than 3,000 brands of clothing, footwear, and accessories, and reveals if they  protect workers' rights and if they have been accused of employing children. It also provides information on factories and whether they care for the environment or not. 

If the brand does not meet the user's ethical standard's, the application provides a list of alternatives that fits into his budget.

So far, the app only categorizes 3,000 brands found in 100 Australian malls, but the creators hope the idea spreads.

The application is available on iOS and Android and is a practical and easy way to practice fair trade and to avoid brands that violate human rights.
