Ethics and Standards

Ethical From Start To Finish

Source My Garment was conceived based on fair trade and corporate social responsibility and the need to provide both quality and affordability. To meet these demands we have established strategic relationships worldwide all of which embody our fundamental values of integrity, honesty, and proper conduct and fair wages. We believe in being transparent and in “knowing” who our sources are. Our relationships with factories are based on mutual respect, shared philosophies, and the desire for all to prosper. We maintain regular contact via Skype and schedule in-person visits to ensure our ethical checklists are being maintained. Wherever possible, certifications are sought. Most importantly we take the time to really know and understand the factories we work with – many of whom, like us, are passionate about “giving back” to their community. Our membership of the Organic Trade Association (OTA) and Green America also helps in keeping our ethical “rule book” – and our advice to you – up-to-date.

Fair Trade And Beyond

Source My Garment and our manufacturers are fully committed to upholding the 10 Key Principles Of Fair Trade as outlined by the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO)

  1. Creating Opportunities for Economically Disadvantaged Producers
  2. Transparency and Accountability
  3. Fair Trading Practices
  4. Payment of a Fair Price
  5. Ensuring no Child Labor and Forced Labor
  6. Commitment to Non Discrimination, Gender Equity and Freedom of Association
  7. Ensuring Good Working Conditions
  8. Providing Capacity Building
  9. Promoting Fair Trade
  10. Respect for the Environment

We stand behind WFTO all the way – and then go beyond by adding a few principles of our own.

  • We source factories that pay fair, in most cases better, wages and demonstrate concern for their employees’ welfare as well by giving back to their local community. We provide consistent purchases, advances and prompt final payments to factories.
  • We pre-pay at least 50% in advance so our producers do not have to go into debt buying materials.
  • We endeavor to increase market share in North America for fairly trade products made by small to medium businesses.
  • We strive to educate people about fair trade practices and the process and hard work that go into manufacturing garments overseas.
  • We cultivate relationships which reflect fundamental values of integrity, honesty, and proper conduct and then keep you in the loop by providing certifications, information, photographs and even videos so that you know the full “story” behind your fair trade ethically manufactured garment.
