We define ethical sourcing as the process of ensuring the materials and products being made are obtained in a responsible and sustainable way and where all workers involved in making them are safe and treated fairly and that environment impacts are taken into consideration throughout the supply chain. We believe that ethics and sustainability go hand-in-hand: by producing ethically, you must in turn incorporate sustainable practices.
We realize that many of our partners are not formally certified by a third party. This is why we require each seller to either provide proof of a third-party certification or go through a comprehensive vetting process to ensure transparency and fairness throughout their supply chain.
Additionally we have partnered with The Conscious Fashion Campaign to integrate the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals throughout Kanekta to educate retailers on supporting conscious consumerism within their stores.
