Ethics


Made with Empathy.

Humantra believes that the exploitation of people and the environment has to be stopped. Workers should be paid a wage that enables them to live in dignity. Our clothing is a way of combating the negative effects of the fashion industry and we’re giving 10% of profits to Clean Clothes Campaign.

 

Made by Earth Positive

Organic and ethically made, but crucially, manufactured solely using sustainable energy generated from wind and solar power, EarthPositive® is a practical and immediate solution for business and fashion to face their biggest challenge and take immediate action to combat climate change.

EarthPositive® apparel is made to demonstrate the highest possible environmental, social and ethical standards, in one of the world’s most environmentally damaging industries, and to provide the music, fashion and promotional garment industries with a familiar product with which to promote awareness and take action on climate change.

Ethical Supply Chain

Under the organic standard, farmers and agricultural workers are protected by stringent social criteria, total traceability across the entire supply chain, but also by the ban on the use of poisonous pesticides and defoliants which can severely damage the health of farmers and families. These standards also free poor farmers tied into third world debt to chemical companies on the ‘pesticide treadmill’.

Pressure to quickly produce increasing quantities of cheap textiles has lead the clothing industry to allow some of the most unethical trade practices on the planet: worst examples include child labour, excessive working hours and unsafe & unhygienic working conditions.

To ensure that EarthPositive® does not contribute to the social injustice seen in manufacturing, commonly known as sweatshop labour, since 2006 they have made transparent their manufacturing supply chain with independent audits by the non-profit organisation
the FAIR WEAR FOUNDATION (FWF) – FWF exists to promote fair labour conditions in the textile industry worldwide.
