Brazilian hardwood floors. Can you say “slave labor?”

Our reader from Minneapolis, Kermit Johnson, replied to our blog-action-day post and alerted us to a very interesting article he wrote about hardwood floors, deforestation and slave labor. So go check it out and big thumbs up to all green conscious real estate people out there.

Disturbing to say the least. I was a logger for years and its a very dangerous job. I cringe just thinking about how many of those "slaves" died logging for no pay. We need to learn more about what we buy and where its from. Our choices here affect the lives of people we will never meet.
