Supply-Chain Transparency
There is little or no transparency on the conditions behind common processes in most supply chains in the clothing industry. Baptist World Aid and Not For Sale's 2013 document, The Australian Fashion Report, identified that out of 128 clothing brands, 61% of companies do not know where their garments are manufactured; 76% not know where their garments are weaved, knitted and dyed; and 93% do not know where their cotton is sourced from. We recommend choosing garments that have specific sustainability features.
See accredited businesses whose garments are made by local workers whose rights and working entitlements are being upheld and protected.
