Improving working conditions in your clothing supply chain

Product Design

The choices that product and graphic designers make have a great deal of influence over issues like health and safety and child labour.  Some materials, treatments and designs carry higher risks of problems – but you can learn about the risks and how to avoid them. Designers also visit factories regularly, and can take steps during those visits to support better working conditions.
