At Nobody’s Child, we want to be part of the solution. We are not perfect, but we’re making changes fast. Right now we are following a roadmap to better our processes from fibre through to finished garment, and even consider how best to improve the lifecycle of our clothes once they’re in the hands of our customer. Our Responsible Brand Commitment outlines 5 key areas of focus for our work…
“Demand quality not just in the products you buy, but in the life of the person who made it.” – Orsola de Castro
Knowing who makes our clothes and how they are valued in their roles is pivotal to our brand. Our labour standards and monitoring processes are in place to help us ensure that the human rights of the people who make our products are respected and the conditions that give rise to modern slavery do not occur in our supply chains. We are committed to continuously strengthening these safeguarding measures year-on-year and communicating our improvements.
- Every supplier we work with must meet or exceed the Conventions of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the Universal Declaration on Human Rights.
- We audit each of our suppliers on an annual basis.
- We give preference to suppliers who are members of the Ethical Trading Initiative and Fairwear Foundation.
Fabric choice alone can account for up to 95% of a product’s social and environmental footprint1.
We take a lifecycle approach to selecting materials, considering the social and environmental wellbeing of our entire value chain and the natural world in our decision making process. Learn more about our materials here or download the Responsible Brand Commitment below.
92 million tonnes of textile waste is created annually2.
We consider waste, secondary markets and extended producer responsibility a critical area of development for our brand. While we expand our measures, we are committed to only working with suppliers who can ensure minimal or no waste in our product development and manufacturing processes.
74% of consumers think fashion brands should publish the factories where their clothes are made3. We actually do it.
We are committed to tracing every step of our clothing supply chain from raw material source to manufacturing so that we can better understand potential social and environmental risks, as well as opportunities for having a more positive impact.
We continue to be open and honest about our journey to be a more responsible brand and our challenges and successes along the way. Over the next 6 months, we’ll be publishing a strategy to outline our future goals and commitments along with a comprehensive roadmap to keep our customer updated on how we plan to achieve them.
