What is ethical sourcing? For our definition we turn to the organization, Sactos Mundo:
Ethical sourcing means ensuring that the products being sourced are created in safe facilities by workers who are treated well and paid fair wages to work legal hours. It also implies that the supplier is respecting the environment during the production and manufacture of the products.
Initially, the collection is drawing from the interviews conducted by 3BL Media at the The Ethical Sourcing Forum 2011 held on March 31st and April 1st in New York City.

Ideas Matter, a joint project of Boston Review and MIT's Political Science Department, is a lecture series that brings our writers together with other experts and practitioners for substantive debate on the challenges of our times.
