What do I mean by the 3 C's? I am referring to Cotton, Coltan, and Coffee. Cotton is found in a great deal of products, as is coltan. For those who do not know what coltan is, it is a metallic ore that can be refined into tantalum, which is then used in many electronic devices. Coffee is coffee and used to wake people up all around the world.
Cotton, coltan, and coffee are important products used by Americans daily. How do we, as Americans ensure that the product we are using is fair trade? Many companies label their products fair trade, but what about the companies that do not? There are several organizations that allow you to find your slavery footprint or hold companies accountable. I recommend looking into them!
