Slavery Footprint

Slavery Footprint - Made In A Free World

This is an interesting little survey/quiz that gives you an estimation of how many worldwide "slaves" you own through calculations based on your household size and the purchases you make, such as food, clothing and electronics.

My score was 58 with the biggest offender being my closet. I don't think I have any more clothing or shoes than the average person but apparently the sweatshops in some countries produce a large amount of the clothing currently on the market.

I think it's a misnomer to refer to it as my "owning" 58 slaves. Borrow possibly but "own" seems a bit strong.

What is your score?
