The issue with child labor in the rug industry is a perfect example of supply and demand. If consumers demand that items are child-labor and slavery-free, then the industry will change for us. This doesn’t just apply to rugs, but to everything, including chocolate, vegetables, clothing, furniture…the list goes on and on. Make sure the products you are buying are child labor and slave free, and if they aren’t, demand a change! We are in control here, and a cheaper product is not worth a life.
