You might be racing madly to the shops for Christmas gifts, stocking stuffers or for a beautiful festive spread of desserts, but you may not know the true impact of these on-the-spot choices. While there are some major brands that shockingly still use child labor, the Australian Clean + Conscious Awards have compiled a list of the red flags that are easy to spot and swap this Christmas.

With 168 million children between the ages of 5- 17 involved in child labour and slavery worldwide, it's important to make sure our personal purchases aren’t helping perpetuate the problem. Children are used in a range of industries from agriculture to manufacturing and fashion as they make for very cheap labour and are easy targets without a voice.


As consumers, we have the power to change this. Products are only created if they will be bought! It is up to us to demand greater transparency of supply chains, so that we can see an end to child labour and slavery.

This Christmas, keep the happiness of all children in mind when buying presents. Here are some red flags to avoid, questions to ask and conscious swaps to ensure a very happy Christmas for all.



Action:


. Read the label – does your makeup or skincare product contain Mica? If so, reach out to the company or look on their website to see whether their mica is sourced ethically.


. There is no certification for ethical mica, however look for brands which are a part of the Responsible Mica Initiative.


. Some ethical brands may also choose to use synthetic man-made mica instead, to ensure their supply chain is child labour free


. Find ethical makeup and skincare products at Clean + Conscious. ur Awards celebrate products that are child labour free as well as sustainably produced and without the use of toxins or pesticides.⁠
