Child labour in the textile supply chain

Child labour in the textile supply chain

Where, why and what can be done

Around 260 million children are in employment around the world, according to the International Labour Organisation (pdf). Of them, the ILO estimates that 170 million are engaged in child labour, defined by the UN as “work for which the child is either too young – work done below the required minimum age – or work which, because of its detrimental nature or conditions, is altogether considered unacceptable for children and is prohibited”.

Child labour is forbidden by law in most countries but continues to be rife in some of the poorest parts of the world.

“The ILO estimates that 170 million are engaged in child labour, with many making textiles and garments to satisfy the demand of consumers in Europe, the US, and beyond”

The situation is improving. ILO estimates suggest child labour declined by 30% between 2000 and 2012, but still 11% of the world’s children are in situations that deprive them of their right to go to school without interference from work.

Many of these child labourers work within the fashion supply chain, making the textiles and garments to satisfy the demand of consumers in Europe, the US, and beyond.

Why does it exist?

Fast fashion has engendered a race to the bottom, pushing companies to find ever-cheaper sources of labour. That cheap labour is freely available in many of the countries where textile and garment production takes place.

Sofie Ovaa, global campaign coordinator of Stop Child Labour, says: “There are many girls in countries like India and Bangladesh, who are willing to work for very low prices and are easily brought into these industries under false promises of earning decent wages.”

A recent report  by the Centre for Research on Multinational Corporations (SOMO), and the India Committee of the Netherlands (ICN) revealed that recruiters in southern India convince parents in impoverished rural areas to send their daughters to spinning mills with promises of a well-paid job, comfortable accommodation, three nutritious meals a day and opportunities for training and schooling, as well as a lump sum payment at the end of three years. Their field research shows that “in reality, they are working under appalling conditions that amount to modern day slavery and the worst forms of child labour”.

Child labour is a particular issue for fashion because much of the supply chain requires low-skilled labour and some tasks are even better suited to children than adults. In cotton picking, employers prefer to hire children for their small fingers, which do not damage the crop.

Children are seen as obedient workers who slip under the radar, making them easy to manage. Ovaa says: “There is no supervision or social control mechanisms, no unions that can help them to bargain for better working conditions. These are very low-skilled workers without a voice, so they are easy targets.”

Employers get away with it because the fashion supply chain is hugely complex and it is hard for companies to control every stage of production. That makes it possible to employ children without big brands and consumers ever finding out.

Where is it happening?

The countries highlighted above were identified by SOMO as particularly notorious for child labour in the textile and garment industry
Children work at all stages of the supply chain in the fashion industry: from the production of cotton seeds in Benin, harvesting in Uzbekistan, yarn spinning in India, right through to the different phases of putting garments together in factories across Bangladesh.

In the cotton industry, children are employed to transfer pollen from one plant to another. They are subjected to long working hours, exposure to pesticides and they are often paid below the minimum wage. In developing countries where cotton is one of the main crops, children are enlisted to help harvest the delicate crop and reports suggest (pdf) they work long hours sowing cotton in the spring, followed by weeding through the summer months.

 

“An estimated 170 million children are engaged in child labour, or 11% of the global population of children, according to the International Labour Organisation”

 

At the next step of the chain, in the yarn and spinning mills, child labour is rampant. The SOMO report (pdf) found that 60% of workers at the mills it investigated in India were under-18 when they started working there; the youngest workers were 15 when they joined.

Children also work in the “cut-make-trim” stage, when clothes are put together. SOMO says: “In garment factories, children perform diverse and often arduous tasks such as dyeing, sewing buttons, cutting and trimming threads, folding, moving and packing garments. In small workshops and home sites, children are put to work on intricate tasks such as embroidering, sequinning and smocking (making pleats).”

What are the challenges?

One of the biggest challenges in tackling child labour in the fashion supply chain is the complex supply chain for each garment. Even when brands have strict guidelines in place for suppliers, work often gets sub-contracted to other factories that the buyer may not even know about.

Ovaa says: “Companies that sell their products in Europe and the US have no clue where the organic cotton clothing come from. Maybe they know their first supplier and there are codes of conduct in place, but further down the chain in the lower tiers it is very difficult to understand where the cotton comes from.”

Tackling child labour is further complicated by the fact it is just a symptom of larger problems. Where there is extreme poverty, there will be children willing to work cheaply and susceptible to being tricked into dangerous or badly paid work.

Lotte Schuurman at the Fair Wear Foundation says if parents have no education they will end up in low-paid work; their children will be forced to work, they will miss out on their education, and they too will end up in low-paid work as adults. “You need to get out of that vicious circle of poverty to decline child labour,” she says.

What can businesses do?

Schuurman says there are practical steps that companies can take to rid their supply chains of child labour. “Brands can start off by creating a supply register. Fashion brands normally have 200 or more suppliers. You should start by knowing who your manufacturers are and visiting them.” On these visits, she says brand representatives must watch out for signs the factory is sub-contracting; they should be concerned, if the factory does not have enough workers for the amount of t-shirts it produces.

 

Companies can also address their purchasing practices, which can make working conditions worse. Schuurman says: “To meet tight deadlines or unanticipated orders, factories may sub-contract without informing the buying companies. Sometimes that is enforced by the brand; it puts too much pressure on the factory.” Companies can adjust their purchasing practices to lighten the load and ensure the factories they have inspected fulfil their orders, she says.

It is also important to make workers aware of their rights so they know where to file a complaint. “Although most clothing brands don’t own their own factories, they do have a lot of influence. We want to work with brands that want to work with their factories,” says Schuurman.

Yay, She’s Had The Baby!

Yay, She’s Had The Baby!

Apologies for not being around recently but we’ve had one heck of a couple of weeks!

My oldest daughter Helena had just finished decorating the baby’s nursery when the midwife came to the house and said they’d probably induce her around 37 weeks because of her high blood pressure. However after numerous weeks of going to and from the maternity unit, her waters broke in the middle of the night at 34 weeks pregnant. By the time they examined her she was already 8 cms dilated and the hypnobirthing techniques she learned helped her do the whole labour without any pain relief!

Whilst all the hard work was being done in the labour ward at Aberdeen Maternity Hospital, we were just starting the drive from Cardiff to Aberdeen! A long 11 hour haul but boy was it worth it.

Baby Dylan James rushed into the world on July 10th, 6 weeks early. The tiny little mite was rushed off to Special Care Baby Unit at the same time as Helena was rushed to theatre haemorrhaging. No time to pop the baby onto Mum’s chest, no time for a lazy first nuzzle at the breast. No time to wrap baby Dylan in his gorgeous new baby swaddle blanket, which was still tucked away in the unopened ‘hospital bag’ along with his sweet organic babygrow; It was a very worrying day for Dad Mik who spent the day going between the SCBU and Helena in the Recovery Ward. Helena wasn’t even allowed to see the baby until the evening as she was so poorly and had lost so much blood.

Dylan needed help with his breathing in the incubator and he needed a feeding tube with glucose too, Babies born so young haven’t got the suck/swallow/breathe reflex right so breastfeeding Dylan has taken a while to get established. He falls asleep after a few sucks so Helena has been expressing her milk too and he’s been getting some of it the lazy way, through a tube.Breastfeeding expert Sharon Trotter has given Helena some excellent advice on breastfeeding a premature baby. She’s also an expert in baby skincare and is the reason why Helena feels so passionately about buying organic cotton baby clothes!

This morning’s update on WhatsApp said he’d put on 40g and fed well all night. He’s been moved out of the ‘hot cot’ into a normal cot and is in a parents’ room in the SCBU. The hospital has been simply amazing and have a special room for the parents and baby to sleep while they get used to the transition between hospital and home. It reassures the parents and means the medical staff can teach mum and dad what to do in the event of an emergency. Once all parties are happy with the situation, then the baby is usually discharged.

Helena has been through a tough 18 months but I don’t think I’ve ever seen her so happy. Welcome to the world Baby Dylan and here’s to a happy life for this new family!

Birthday Gift Ideas for 1st Birthday

The first birthday is in a lot of ways the most difficult milestone birthday to shop for in regards to a gift. The recipient can’t tell us what they want. The parents shrug and if they say anything at all it will be “oh, just clothes will be fine”. True, clothes would be appropriate and acceptable, but if that would be the gift you wanted to give you would have no need to read this article.

However, if you like going for something with a little style; if you like the look everyone gives when you hit a homerun in return gifts giving. This may be may be one that gets some oohs and aahs for you.

birthday return gifts

If you have ever been involved in making a time capsule, the concept of this birthday return gifts will not be new to you. First thing you will need is a gift basket of sorts. This can be a plastic or rubber storage tub with a cover or a real gift basket. You will need some type of clear sealable bags. You can also just use a gift bag if you want and the parents can figure out how to best store the items but if you want it to last till the child is an adult you may want to figure out some type of storage system in advance.

The first item you will probably want to put in there is a newspaper from the day they were born. This should not be too difficult if you go to your local newspaper office. If you have thought far enough ahead and you want to you can start a year ahead of time, on the day of birth.

You could record the local news, weather and sports on the day of birth and burn it to a DVD or just a VHS tape. Of course the problem here is longevity, because you want the media to last the child into adulthood.

A magazine or two along the lines of Time or Newsweek is a great addition. You may like to throw in some of the pop culture magazines as well. TV Guide, Rolling Stone, People and US are great choices. Sports Illustrated and Women’s World are good ideas too.

You can record one network’s primetime lineup on the day of birth, so that when the child gets older they can see what was popular they were born.

The digital revolution has given us another way to give something from day of the child’s birth. Walmart and several other websites offer downloads of individual songs. You can make a custom CD of the top 5 or 10 songs that week.

The best thing about this gift is that you can spend as much or as little as you want and it can be extremely fun to put together. Pictures of everything the child may wonder about from the day are inexpensive additions.

There are dozens more items you can come up with for this special day. The main thing is to build a time capsule of memories and have fun.

In the cold, heat can be maintained close to the skin without feeling overbearing.

For anyone who’s worn polyester on a hot day, the same cannot be said for synthetics. fabric store is a natural fiber, and like human hair, no two strands accept dye in exactly the same way.

Before a textile is even made, the differences between fabric store and polyester Fabric Store Brooklyn are astounding.
