There’s a big discussion going on about using bar codes and / or QR codes for clothing with the objective of providing and connecting consumers with the product they are purchasing .It is envisaged customers will read the codes using their smart phones. The big question has to be what information should be included?

Golf Refugees have been banging on for a while about sports apparel; introducing a list of the chemical ingredients, as sportswear is designed to interact with your skin.

We also feel the following should be included;

Who owns the factory?

Are the textile workers unionised? Yes or No

Average textile worker (weekly/monthly) pay?

Average textile worker age?

What energy sources are used to power the factory?

Does the factory have any water treatment / water recycling facilities for dye water?

This is an important issue. If you have any time please let us know what information you'd like to see included?
