The post pandemic world has surely helped in gathering momentum globally in our sustainable ways of working.
At Warp Weft International(WWI), we owe it to our customers, partners and communities to further the collective commitment to human rights, safety and environmentally sound practices through sustainable and ethical methods.
Ethical and sustainable processes in the home products industry is an approach towards sourcing, manufacturing fabrics which maximizes the benefits to the industry and society at large, at the same time minimizes its environmental impact. Ethical means morally right and acceptable. Therefore, ethical and sustainable fashion is not limited to manufacturing. It begins from the cotton fields and ends in the consumer's house. For example, conventional cotton farming does not come under ethical and sustainable as pesticides harmful for human consumption and for the environment are used. Ensuring fair wages, no forced or child labor, workers get their basic human rights, health and safety measures are followed in the workplace, biodiversity, organic cultivation, fabrics are manufactured in sustainable ways, etc. will make the industry truly ethical and sustainable in every way.
We ensure that our partner vendors or manufacturers are committed to our purpose by purchasing products made in mills that adhere to Responsible Sourcing Standards. We believe in complete transparency in sourcing, manufacturing, designing and other processes, so that our clients are well informed. We conduct quality checks and follow up visits to our partner mills to ensure compliance with these standards.
As businesses, we must understand that we have the ability to effect change by doing the right thing. To help protect endangered forests, animals and to ensure that there will be enough resources for our future generations. We must commit to practice the responsible use of wood and wood products originating from well-managed forests.
In order to reduce business costs and the impact that our product distribution has on the environment, it is important that our supply chain is managed more efficient. We constantly strive to come up with innovative ideas and solutions at every stage. For example, it is necessary to gain greater end-to-end visibility, control over transportation modes and efficiencies that reduce miles and emissions.
Companies must practice sustainability and encourage others to follow and embed this concept into the main objectives of business. Ethical and sustainable fashion is the only way forward that will eventually become a norm to be followed by all in the fashion industry for a better future.
