Human Trafficking in Every Day Products

 I read an article today about human trafficking, something I never give much thought to but definitely should be more cognizant about.  The article was about a mom who became aware of human trafficking and has tried to make small changes in her daily life (from buying blueberries from countries that don't force children & women to pick food, to buying clothing items with organic cotton that doesn't use pesticides that harm the people that pick the cotton or the enviornment it is in).  The article references a website that is worth checking out:

Human trafficking is the transportation, harboring, selling or employment of a person through the means of force, fraud or coercion for the purpose of forced servitude.  -
