Browser plug-in hides products associated with child labor

August 8, 2012

Now available for Safari and Google Chrome, aVOID helps consumers stay away from products associated with the exploitation of children.

Created through a campaign by German Earthlink, aVOID currently works with all major online shops in the US, France, Germany and the United Kingdom, including Asos, Yoox, Amazon, Target, Macys, Zalando, Google Shopping, Frontlineshop and Otto. Users simply install the plug-in – which will be available for Firefox in the near future, the company says – and then shop online as usual. Using data from Active Against Child Labour, the plug-in automatically filters out products associated with child exploitation, helping consumers avoid such products altogether.
