Hello, my name is Bram Callewier, Director at Stoneasy.com, a natural stone importer. Welcome to the first part of a 6 part blog series where we talk about child labour in the stone industry. Everyone involved in natural stone will have heard about how children are involved in its production. The truth is that yes, they are, and especially in certain activities such as cobble making. But what’s really happening in these remote parts of the world, far away from our professionally designed gardens, what’s the real story? This blog aims to educate people on the root causes of child labour and to share some of the truly inspiring community led projects, working tirelessly to tackle this and other related social issues. What you read won’t always be pretty, but we promise it will be the truth and we guarantee it will be written impartially.
