Youth One World exhorts trade to increase the supply of fair natural stones


In their current press release, Jugend Eine Welt reminds that child labor can be found in many natural stones such as paving stones, kitchen or floor slabs. Above all, they address retail in Austria, which has so far hardly taken care of controls in Indian or Chinese supply chains.

We can confirm this from our point of view: In Austria, XertifiX, for example, only works with the wholesaler Stein & Co from Ennsdorf – but this has been the case for many years. We hope that more importers in Austria will follow this example.
