Young Living Essential Oils, along with its philanthropic arm the D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation, is working to address, mitigate and prevent the risk of modern slavery and labor trafficking through a partnership with Hope for Justice through the Slave-Free Alliance. Young Living is donating $10,000 to Hope for Justice as part of an Anti-Slavery Week campaign and to help spread awareness about the signs of modern slavery, while also sharing how businesses can safeguard their own supply chains from these abhorrent labor conditions.
Young Living stated that its Supply Chain team is “committed to protecting the rights of those most vulnerable in the supply chain through its partnership and affiliation with the Slave-Free Alliance,” and that “the sourcing and manufacturing of goods and services should never use child labor or conditions that restrict personal freedoms.”
“Slave-Free Alliance is proud to partner with Young Living to support its work to protect those most vulnerable in its global operations and supply chain,” said Rachel Hartley, Slave-Free Alliance Consultancy Director. “Young Living continues to stretch its work beyond compliance and transparently address risks of modern slavery and labor exploitation. We’re thrilled to recognize Anti-Slavery Week and incredibly grateful for Young Living’s support of our parent charity, Hope for Justice. Together, we’re committed to creating long-lasting social impact.”
