As a SMETA-certified member, we are committed to responsible product manufacturing, material sourcing, and raising the bar for ethical working conditions.
Health, Labor & Safety.
Sustainability is not only about the products but the people that create them as well. By creating high ethical standards for the factories we use, it gives us the ability to monitor and control working conditions. One auditor is SEDEX Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA) to ensure employees lead healthy, safe, and dignified lives. Responsible for maintaining ethical global supply chain practices, SMETA ensures that:
Work environments are safe and sanitary.
Business practices are ethical.
Employees understand their rights in their labor relationships.
Founded in 1958, this movement brings together sustainable and equitable fairness for farmers and workers in developing countries paid by developed countries. Fairtrade aims to create opportunities for disadvantaged producers, forbids forced and child labor, enables fair payment, supports local & community development, enforces good working conditions, and climate change through farming. When you see a product with the Fairtrade mark, this shows producers and businesses have agreed to those standards. We have a growing network of Fairtrade suppliers to continue our economically- sound best practices.
Zero Inventory & Recycled Packaging.
Zero inventory and ethically sourced materials is how we help eliminate environmental risks by getting rid of excess stock and mass production. Your business won’t need warehouses full of ready-made materials created by machines that may become waste. Depending on your business needs, we have a network of suppliers who can produce handmade, on-demand all while crafted with the highest quality, ethically sourced materials. For packaging, our suppliers use 100% recycled packaging, which can be certified by the FSC.
