GOODWEAVE TO EXHIBIT AT
WASHINGTON, DC -- GoodWeave will exhibit at Heimtextil, a gathering of thousands of exhibitors in the home and contract textile industry, to be held Jan. 8 - Jan. 11, 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany. The GoodWeave exhibit will showcase in Gallery 1, N12 and a
discussion will take place Jan. 11th at 10:30 AM in Hall 11, level O foyer.
GoodWeave will present its global solution to end child
labor in supply chains by leveraging the power of the market, promoting
transparency, restoring childhood, and addressing market failures that are at
the root cause. Attendees will also learn how to partner with GoodWeave to join
in its vision of a world free of child labor.
Over the almost 25 years of partnering with importers and
exporters, GoodWeave has rescued over 5,000 children from labor, provided
quality education to almost 26,000 rescued and vulnerable children, and reached
more than 75,0000 workers predominantly in carpet supply chains. Most recently,
GoodWeave has expanded into apparel, home textiles, fashion jewelry, bricks,
and tea where its reach and impact continue to grow.
In partnership with global brands, GoodWeave's home textile
program now certifies select home textile products with the GoodWeave label --
the best assurance that they were made without child labor. The organization's
impact goes beyond reach numbers as it has been a leading voice in positively
influencing societal norms and behaviors to eliminate child and forced labor.
GoodWeave, a nonprofit organization founded in 1994 by
Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi, is the leading global institution with a
mission to end child labor, and forced and bonded labor, in global supply
chains through a market-based holistic and authentic system. We bring
visibility to global supply chains, give voice to informal and marginalized
workers, provide assurance that certified products are free of child labor, and
restore childhood to vulnerable children so they can laugh, learn, and play.
