Wear a wristband, support exploitation?

Make Poverty History is the theme of the protests that will surround the G8 summit at Gleneagles this summer. No Sweat will be heading along in full tweeds, as our Golfers Against Sweatshops make for the Gleneagles greens.

To show your support for Make Poverty History, the organisers are asking you to wear plastic wristbands. Apparently beating poverty is a completely separate issue from beating sweatshop exploitation though, as these bands are made in China.

If you oppose both poverty and exploitation, you can buy Traidcraft fair trade Make Poverty History armbands, made in the UK.
