Millions of children every year get taken out of their school to go and harvest cotton from the fields. The government forces them to do so as they get billions of dollars out of these harvests. The children start from the youngest age of 7 and upwards. They spend months doing this and they must pick up up to 25 kilos of cotton daily. They get rewarded with 40-50 US cents. To help prevent this you can sign this petition and stop the major consumers of the Uzbek cotton. The largest consumers are the hip shopping stores billions of people consume from internationally. Forever 21, Urban Outfitters , Toys ''R'' Us, Aeropostale, Childrens Palace, Carter's, Gymboree and the Gap. Childrens Palace, Carter's, Gymboree and the Gap have put an end to the child labor however the rest of the stores are staying silent about the situation! Help the children of Uzbekistan and stop Forever 21, Urban Outfitters , Toys ''R'' Us and Aeropostale from continuing their major use of Uzbek cotton now!
