This is something we see as of the UTMOST importance at Milk & Sugar. Proudly, we ONLY work with manufacturers who are accredited as adhering to SA8000 International Employment and Manufacturing Standards.
SA8000 is an international accreditation that ALL our manufacturers adhere to. These standards are auditable and they require organisations to develop, maintain, and apply socially acceptable practices in the workplace. Key standards include * No use or support of child labour * No use or support for forced or compulsory labour * Provide a safe and healthy workplace * Respect the right to form and join trade unions and bargain collectively * No discrimination based on race, national or social origin, caste, birth, religion, disability, gender, sexual orientation, union membership, political opinions and age * Treat all personnel with dignity and respect * Compliance with laws & industry standards of working hours * Respect right of personnel to living wage.
We only work with textile manufacturers whose products are certified as carrying the OEKO-Tex STANDARD 100. If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 certification, you can be certain that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, button and the material it's made from has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is completely safe for human use. All our cushions and bedding carry this accreditation.
Another incredibly important issue and our answer is a resounding yes. The weavers that we work with to create our beautiful rugs are all accredited GoodWeave. At the heart of the GoodWeave Standard is an assurance on behalf of importers and manufacturers that the goods they make and sell have been produced without child labour, forced labour, or bonded labour.
