Support anti-trafficking efforts this holiday season
( STOP THE TRAFFIK) - When shopping this holiday season keep in mind ways to support anti-trafficking efforts put forth by businesses. STOP THE TRAFFIK, an NGO based in the United Kingdom, has put together a list of stores to shop in which proceeds go towards combating human trafficking.
Specialising in contemporary handmade porcelain jewellery, Something Precious donates £1 to STOP THE TRAFFIK for every item sold. Heaven's Attic also donates money to different anti-trafficking organizations and consumers specify which charity they would like their money to go toward. Freeset is a fair trade business that offers employment to women trapped in Kolkata's sex trade in India. By offering women high wages and the opportunity to learn a skill, the Freeset project helps to empower women with the choice to escape the sex trade. The business has produced a STOP THE TRAFFIK tote bag which can be purchased here.
In addition to clothing and jewellery, when purchasing chocolate this season use Traffik-free chocolate. In order to do this look for Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance or UTZ logos.
