    Interesting article here about how the anti-poverty (and, I would imagine, majority of other) wristbands are being produced using slave labour in China.

    The sooner people jump off this bandwagon, the better.

    Maybe the wristbands will save his life should the crocodile decide his hand looks tasty? I can see the headlines now: “Charity wristbands thwart hand-eating croc”.
    Maybe they should run the story anyway, it sounds like it could be a good one (and who needs something to actually happen to write about it?).

    Do you really need an another article to tell you how people are being exploited to make various products?

    Whether its anti-poverty or not. Its a job to them, true it seems unjust to us that they’re being paid a .000001% of our pay, but would the world suddenly be a better place if we just stopped using cheap labor? Where will these people be employed then?

    Anyway just saying, the problem runs deeper than wristbands.

    PS: It was always entertaining throwing dead chickens into the croc pond. :)

    Of course the problem runs deeper than wristbands. It’s just not often you find blatent proof of specific anti-poverty prodycts being made in slave labour style. You’d think (you’d hope to think) that the people wanting to make such bands would at least have checked it out.

    The Sriracha tiger farm is perhaps one of the most notorious operators in Thailand and has been under constant observation for it alleged breeding of tigers for meat, medicine and export to china for all sorts of great reasons.
