iREPORTERS SIGNED UP
Created September 23, 2011 by
It can be tough to determine whether products have or have not been produced using slavery. A component of a product -- cotton in a T-shirt, for example -- may be a result of human trafficking.
Thankfully, there are products in our lives that are slavery-free, like the home-grown tomato you had for lunch or the ring you purchased from a local jewelry artist.
As part of CNN's Freedom Project, we want you to look around at the items you use every day and identify a few you feel certain are slavery-free. Do you make an effort to shop slavery-free, or is this the first time you've thought about where products come from?
Upload photos of your slavery-free items and share your perspective with CNN. The best stories will be featured on CNN's Freedom Project blog. The deadline for submissions is Monday, October 17.
