NGO Tony Chocolonely has urged the Dutch Senate to pass a bill that would ensure that all products and services on the Dutch market are child labor free. Raptim Humanitarian Travel full heartedly supports this appeal, along with 21 other companies.Child labor has to be eradicatedThe bill (Kuiken Zorgplicht Kinderarbeid) has already passed the Dutch House of Representatives, but questions remain whether it will make it through the Senate as well. That´s why Tony Chocolonely, a Dutch social enterprise fighting for a slave-free chocolate industry, wrote a letter to the Senate, urging politicians to pass the bill. The letter is co-signed by 22 companies. Raptim is one of the parties, together with Heineken and Rabobank.There are three main reasons why the Dutch Senate should pass this bill. First of all, child labor deserves a thorough approach to eradicate. Everyone supports that, but corporations and the government have to take responsibility. Secondly, by making the chain of production transparent, you reward companies who are frontrunners fighting against this fundamental problem. And thirdly, The Netherlands should remain a leading country in this cause. Other countries have already adopted similar legislation.
