Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
Carrying a counterfeit bag hurts far more than your reputation. Counterfeit merchandise is directly responsible for the loss of more than 750,000 American jobs* and poses a threat to global health and safety. Consumer demand is fueling this illegal trade; Bella Bag is fighting back.
A counterfeit handbag is most likely produced in a sweatshop that operates in violation of child labor laws, “I’ve read stories of children who work in Asian sweatshops and have had their legs broken so they can’t go outside or play,” says Bella Bag Founder and Director Cassandra Connors. “Counterfeit items do devastating things to our economy and to the world.”
Four reasons why you should never fake it:
In March, Bella Bag held an event at their Atlanta showroom to take fakes off the streets. Dozens of women brought in fake goods in exchange for store credit. Connors adds, “Many of my friends have picked up fake bags without realizing the damage done by counterfeiters. The controversy on fakes is about more than Intellectual Property.”
