Today, there are more than 30 million modern-day slaves.
Slavery isn’t dead. In fact, more men, women and children are being forced to work without pay than at any other point in history. People who work in almost every industry in the world are subjected to physical, mental and emotional exploitation.
Boll & Branch partners with Not For Sale to address the root causes of exploitation.
Our vision is to bring an end to modern-day slavery and create a world where no one is for sale.
We provide shelter and care to create a safe environment for vulnerable communities, create opportunities for training and learning life skills, and promote long-term economic stability by helping implement sustainable business models suitable to those at-risk populations.
Once you know, you know.
Slavery touches almost every industry in the world. It touches the food we eat, the clothes we buy and the technology we love. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, “after drug dealing, trafficking of humans is tied with arms-dealing as the second-largest criminal industry in the world” at $32 billion dollars a year.
Right now, more than 30 million children and adults around the world are enslaved in forced labor, debt bondage, sex trafficking and military servitude, and that number continues to grow everyday.
Thank you for helping us make a difference.
A portion every purchase you make here at Boll & Branch goes to Not For Sale, because while our own supply-chain is free of child and forced labor, not everyone in our industry upholds such rigorous standards. Thank you so much for enabling us to give back in this way - we couldn’t do it without you.
