Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

POPE FRANCIS

"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.
