Slavery Footprint

Slavery Footprint

Slavery is an ugly topic even when it’s about some far away place happening to someone else. But when you have a direct connection to it, it is even uglier. Slavery Footprint is an online graphic calculator that will give you a hard number that estimates the number of slaves working to keep you happy and comfortable in your current lifestyle. The interface is happy and clean. Which is a smart move on their part. It feels like parting with the information they require to calculate your slavery footprint is harmless. On the surface, it is. But consider the headline on the opening screen, “Everyone says they would have fought against slavery 150 years ago. Now’s your chance.” Well, fellow slaveowner, what will we do?
