I know that in third world countries a lot of workers are treated like slaves so I decided that, since I have no idea if the workers of a particular company are treated well, I will not buy products from third world countries (or, at least I will try not to), so I wanted to ask your opinion:
- do you believe it is a sin to buy products from China?
- it would be immoral to keep buying some products from, for example, China until I find an alternative?
- it is very hard to buy only from fair trades companies, because I live in Italy and we don’t have a lot of them and buying clothes from the USA is expensive. So I thought that maybe buying products that are manufactured in Europe and USA might be a good alternative since those countries protect workers. Still, I know that, for example, “made in Italy” doesn’t mean that an item is 100% made in Italy, it is possible that a certain % of it is made elsewhere and I have no chance to know where and in what conditions. It would be a sin to buy such products, even if I know that there is a chance that a part of them is made from ill treated workers?
