ACRATH Campaign - Purchasing is always a moral act

Weekend of March 30 & 31

1 in 4 children are trapped in global slavery - Photo: bigstockphoto.comPope Francis said “every person ought to have the awareness that purchasing is always a moral – and not simply an economic – act.”

It is estimated that up to 40 million people are trapped in slavery globally – 1 in 4 of these are children. They will never get an education and they will never taste the chocolate produced from the cocoa beans they pick. But people around the world are making decisions that could change this tragedy.

Good News: St Vincent’s Health Australia is working towards slavery-free procurement of the goods and services used across their 32 sites.


Action:  Follow the lead of Melbourne Catholic schools and St Vincent’s and buy only slavery-free. It is delicious. It will feature one of these three logos.
