Nike, Adidas, and Reebok all definitely don't. Especially Nike.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

That is an excellent question.

I, personally, don't know, but I'm sure, with some research, you could find out clothing lines that are made in countries with decent labor laws and human rights. It wouldn't be a perfect list as I know that here in the US there are still sweatshops under the radar, but it might be a good jumping off point...

Good luck, I hope that you share what you find.

Going through that white suburban middle class guilt phase, I see? Hopefully you'll grow out of it soon.

My guess would be Levi Strauss. I saw how pants were made, and it seems nearly impossible for man to mass-produce pants for today's market. The goal of any company is to create a better product for the highest possible income, so i personally have trouble judging their methods if I stay safe. It's the duty of the government to crack down on illegal activity, not the consumer.

The government consists entirely of consumers, though.

I was going to suggest the Newgrounds store, but there is no way that those penicorns are made anywhere but a sweatshop.

Those poor Taiwanese children must be so confused by American culture as they sow two penises onto those stuffed animals.

Does it matter anyways if you boycott stores that use sweatshops? One person will not do a thing.

surprisingly yes the average consumer does have the means to change the market. with will and determination one man can accomplish anything he sets his mind to. If you look at all great leaders throughout history were they not just men with a goal.
