Matt Peters, Re:Sustain founder has a long term relationship with the factory and has worked with them on various projects, visiting several times. The SMETA audit noted the following areas of best practice: “meal is provided to workers free of charge” and “transportation is provided to workers free of charge”.
Organic cotton protects the environment and also farmers who may suffer ill health when coming into contact with the intensive fertilisers and pesticides used in conventional cotton production.
This sweatshirt is made to last! Making a product that will stand the test of time is a hugely important aspect of sustainable design.
AREAS FOR DEVELOPMENT
The SMETA audit report detailed that only part of workers wages were paid through the official payroll with the remaining amount paid in cash. This means that the factory only makes a social insurance contribution on part of workers salaries. Re:Sustain Founder Matt Peters shared with us that this is countrywide issue but that Re:Sustain have since started working with a new supplier that has GOTS certification, and are members of the Sustainable Apparel Collection.
