2010 Sweatshop Hall of Shame

The official inductees of the 2010 Sweatshop Hall of Shame are: Abercrombie and Fitch, Gymboree, Hanes, Ikea, Kohl’s, LL Bean, Pier 1 Imports, Propper International, and Walmart (laborrights.org)

That's firstly a US list (although Walmart owns ASDA) but UK suppliers aren't immune and we need to be aware that Fair Trade, let alone organic, suppliers need to be sought out. But don't despair, there are many Fair Trade suppliers now so it's worth browsing around -
