For fair toys from China
Excessively low wages, extremely long working days and a working environment that puts human health at risk remain commonplace in Chinese toy factories. Working in cooperation with China Labor Watch, Solidar Suisse sheds light on numerous abuses. We publish factory inspections and call on toy companies to act responsibly.
We need a change in mindset
Look - don’t turn a blind eye
Thanks to pressure from critical consumers and NGOs, toy companies now feel obliged to address problems in their supply chains. Research is taken seriously and triggers follow-up inspections in factories. However, these are often undertaken using the same control mechanisms that have failed in the past and, as a result, there has not yet been a fundamental improvement in factory workers’ conditions.
