I'm not sure if there is, but this would be a great project to get started. Maybe I'll set up a wiki or get a database running this weekend...

Awesome. I'll look for a good URL to grab.

Any suggestions?

Not sure really. But there are some TLD's that are cheap as, like .xyz. I bought an xyz for $1 for the first year, and then it's about $6 for the following years

I'd like to participate on this. Maybe a barcode scanner app that leads to the wiki could be good

It doesn't exactly fulfill all categories, but Slavery Footprint lists the amount of slaves whose labor your rely on to enjoy the perks that you do. It doesn't have anything on animal cruelty or environmental crimes, but it covers the exploitation of humans.

Website URL: https://slaveryfootprint.org/

What is their definition of slavery? (the website is broken for me for what it's worth)

I checked on the link. It only seems to work in Explorer or Chrome and not any other browsers. Sorry.

When they take about slavery, they do mention sweatshops, but they are referring more in terms of raw materials, like the cotton used to make the shirts or the minerals mined to make jewelry. There are a lot of skeeviness associated with those.

the "es vegan?" android app gives the origin of anything you can find in the ingredients of your food. I sometimes browse it to know what the "E202" type additives are.

There are also phone apps that can scan products code-bars and tell you the "level of healthyness", and if it's vegetarian/vegan. they may also say how environmentally-friendly they are.
