There are many different brands, companies and products in the world. Some of these companies and brands get their products made very cheaply as they exploit the workers that work long hours in unsafe factories in poor countries like Bangladesh. Just last year, the Dhaka Savar building, a factory owned by K-mart, collapsed leaving just over 1,000 people dead and many more injured. These workers were earning one measily dollar per day. If companies exploiting these people raised the prices a dollar higher then the Bangladeshis could afford to have better lives. You can make a difference, if you buy fairtrade certified products than these people will have a healthier, happier and enjoyable life to look forward too.
