When buying something at the mall, it's always comforting to know your purchase did not use child labor, and the Free2Work app now allows consumers to look into these goings on.

Free2work has introduced a new iPhone and android app with a barcode-scanning feature, which will make it easier for ethical customers to support manufacturing that does not involve child or forced labor. Free2work evaluates companies on their labor standards and offers information to customers through its Free2work app. The cool part of the app is that it uses a scanner to scan the barcode of a product, and gets instant information about the company's effort to take care of child labor or forced labor in its supply chain, so consumers are given the right information, right when they need it.
