SUPPLIERS OF LOWE’S IN THE US AND WALMART IN BRAZIL LINKED TO SLAVE LABOR IN THE AMAZON

Products derived from timber extracted by workers living in conditions analogous to slave labor in Brazil are connected to a complex business network linked to the U.S. market – possibly reaching the shelves of large retailers and being used in renovation of landmarks – according to a new investigation conducted by Brazilian news outlet Repórter Brasil. After purchasing from suppliers held liable for that crime by the Brazilian government, local traders exported timber to companies like USFloors, which supplies the retail chain Lowe’s, as well as Timber Holdings, which supplied timber for construction projects at Central Park and Brooklyn Bridge in New York.https://news.mongabay.com/2017/03/suppliers-of-lowes-in-the-us-and-walmart-in-brazil-linked-to-slave-labor-in-the-amazon/
