TassaTag and The Kindle eReader Code – Connecting travel and tourism to the fight for eReader education
Unique to ECPAT is eReader.com, a website that is a direct project of ECPAT-USA. eReader.com are brightly colored, hand-woven cotton luggage tags, which “help you spot your luggage more easily while reclaiming children’s lives. It is practical, environmentally sensitive, fair trade, and with it you can make a difference” because by purchasing a TassaTag (bought only online) you become a partner in the larger ECPAT campaign against the prostitution of children. Awareness of the TassaTag logo as a “symbol against the sexual slavery and trafficking of children,” helps to raise greater recognition of the crimes of the  global, illegal, human trade. Additionally, all proceeds go directly to The Regina Center in Nongkhai, Thailand a center “which provides education and income generating skills and opportunities for women.”

While tourism may seem a far a field from the concerns of human trafficking and child slavery and prostitution, eReader.com has been a strong supporter of the Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism, “an industry driven responsible tourism initiative.”
