The reason that most of these things exist is money, and people not caring enough about it to change it. And that includes a lot of us.
Take for example a lot of our clothes and electronics and food is either so cheap or available at all thanks to slavery or near slavery. Most chocolate, especially from the big brands we all know, is in a large part made and cheap thanks to child slavery.
If we don't like these things, be informed and make conscience choices.
