“The Price of Free” star Kailash Satyarthi says consumers have the power to end child slavery | Kailash Satyarthi US

As the holiday season kicks off, Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi wants consumers to ask more questions. Satyarthi stars in the new documentary, “The Price of Free,” in which he rescues child slaves in India who work in factories, some of which supply U.S. stores.

Satyarthi, whose mission is to save children from slavery and violence, is the founder of Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA), based in India, and the international organization The Kailash Foundation (TKF).

He told CBS News, “For every product, consumers can ask this question to the brand or shopkeepers, ‘How can you guarantee that they are truly made without child labor?’ That can be the starting point … When consumers star asking questions, then [stores] have to find answers.” Satyarthi said consumers have the power to hold businesses accountable for their practices.
