We hope you consider any of these businesses next time you need anything from jackets to jeans or swimwear to skincare. They all certifiably avoid Uyghur-forced labour and many of them are smaller businesses.
P.S. We love hearing about other ethical brands.
Right now, over 2 million Uyghurs are being held in internment camps and enslaved as forced labour. This forced labour involves picking the cotton used in the supply chain for many highstreet retailers.
Whilst most of this forced labour is centred in Xinjiang, there are also credible reports of Uyghurs being relocated to many different regions to work in factories.
As such, the only way to be sure that companies are not using Uyghur forced labour is to boycott any retailers selling products made in China.
The retailers shown on this website have confirmed that their products:
i) are not assembled in China
ii) do not use parts made in China
iii) do not contain materials sourced from China
We also recommend a variety of retailers whose products are made with second-hand materials.
Please do get in contact with any questions or remarks!
