A 22-year old was trafficked out of his home country and forced to harvest dirty palm oil seven days a week without pay. He couldn’t even escape, as his employer had taken away his passport.
This is not a tale from decades ago -- it’s part of the business model for Procter & Gamble (P&G).
Modern-day slave labor was found on plantations of P&G’s direct supplier -- a dirty business strategy for extracting palm oil as cheaply as possible.
But they can’t keep it up for long. As you read this, the feds are investigating their next cargo shipments of dirty palm oil.
Any day now, these palm oil shipments could be seized from docks on the East Coast.
Can you donate now to ensure we can block it from P&G?
