“We are very concerned,” parent company Limited Brands said in a statement, noting that the cotton in question, which comes from the West African nation of Burkina Faso, is “used in a small portion of our Victoria’s Secret panty styles.”
“If this allegation is true, it describes behavior that is contrary to our company’s values and the code of labor and sourcing standards that we require all of our suppliers to meet,” the statement said. “These standards expressly prohibit child labor.”
These are declaration of the main company that owns Victoria’s Secret after a investigation has been publish accusing the brand of purchasing, under the Logo of Free Trail, cotton produced in the African Nation of Burkina Faso with Child Labor.
Many question arose as result of this investigation, and the PRs of the Corporation reacted with the same words we heard from the Department of Defense after the Torture Accusation at the Iraqi Detention Center at the hands of US Soldiers.
I honestly believe that Limited Brands has no interest in supervise their production line, and has invest billions in Ads and Campaigns to promote more profits to its Stockholders than to really improve the communities were their resources are produced. Another example of Corporations Exploration, without Border and without Morals. Of course they would do everything in their power to investigate and to eliminate the “Bad PRess” but just because they were cut.
Then, people ask why those “hippies” of OWS and the Occupy Movement are marching and calling attention.
Shame on Victoria, shame on Limited Brands.
