The Green Barcode Project is a project that sprung from my study at The Speaker’s Institute.
The marvellous mind of Sam Cawthorne listened to an outline of my book “The Last Wild Horse”, and from a 1 minute conversation I re-wrote the entire book, and, came up with the idea of “The Green Barcode Project”.
What does a GREEN barcode do?
Instead of the normal BLACK barcode you see on the back of anything you buy at the store…a GREEN barcode shows that the company who made the product you’re thinking of buying was inspected by that country’s authorities to make sure people are not working in slave conditions.
Why would governments be interested?
Power and money. Simple. Governments can put a tariff (tax) black barcode products higher.
That, then, hopefully would give governments, especially in developing countries, enough money to chase after slave owners, and enough power to prosecute them.
Aren’t slaves a thing of the past?
There are 40 million slaves in the world today.
Just stop and think of ONE person being in slavery. What about forty MILLION. And, it increases every year.
