    Cafe Press would easily sell the lables. Eventually some (especially the American companies that pride themselves in well-treated employees) might pick up on it. But as I see it, the hard issue would be if a "fake" worker-friendly company started using it. Creating a certifying agency isn't our style.

    •  Sell the labels to whom? It would still (0+ / 0-)

      mean the companies have to put the labels on their products, which I don't see them doing of their own free will. I think the phone app is a better idea, and doesn't involve any contact with the companies at all, and no physical labels. If you want to try your idea, by all means go for it, but it doesn't seem very practical to me.
