How do you ensure good working conditions and wages?
We take pride in having an active role in our manufacturing process. Unlike a lot of brands, we visit each production facility several times per month to make sure that all of our products are made ethically, sustainably, and with the utmost quality assurance.
At our request, our recycled paper producer has been independently audited and certified under the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) accreditation scheme, and by the BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative). The FSC accreditation is predominantly an environmental certification, and the BSCI audit focuses on driving social compliance and improvements in global supply chain management. The audit scored our producer the highest grade achievable across multiple categories: workers rights, freedom of association and collective bargaining, no discrimination, no child labour, no precarious employment, no bonded labour, and overall ethical business behaviours. We know it’s a mouthful, but supporting positive work environments is something that’s incredibly important to us… so excuse us for bragging a little bit.
