Would You Please Contact Catholic Book Publishing?

February 20, 2008

Hi Everyone,

We have been purchasing books from Catholic Book Publishing for years now. We have been in an ongoing discussion with them about their move to print more and more of their products in China. The official answer from the company is that low cost trumps any human rights violations that China engages in. Today we had to discontinue eleven more books that have switched printing from Korea to China.

Could you politely write to Catholic Book Publishing and let them know that you would be happy to pay a couple of dollars more per book if they would stop printing in China?

Posting this on our blog could result in them canceling our account as they have threatened to do in the past over this issue. However, we believe that the Chinese problem is far more important than our ability to order their products direct.

Do You Want to Know Why Your Catholic Statue Is So Inexpensive?

December 21, 2007

It’s because in China it takes a factory worker two weeks to earn enough to buy a Big Mac.

Now, as a Catholic shopper it seems that supporting this type of exploitation by buying such products would violate several Catholic principles of  just labor.

Next time you are in a Catholic store, ask if the stuff you are buying is made somewhere where the people are actually paid a living wage.

In America you get bad credit ratings for things like not paying your bills and having too many credit cards. In China you get bad credit ratings by having more than one kid. How many babies do you think are aborted each year because of government policies like this?
