Susty Wear Certifications
Susty Wear only partners with factories and suppliers who display socially acceptable practices in the workplace which we live by ourselves as well. We chose to work with those who are Fair Wear Certified™ /SA8000 because they ensure care for both people and the planet. Fair Trade factories provide safe working conditions, empower and uplift local communities, and protect the environment.
To make sure our products are sustainable, ethical, and of high quality our supply chain is certified by various independent bodies and standards. Each of these certifications shows that we take sustainable and ethical products and processes very seriously and that we work towards a healthier and kinder planet. These help us to check on every step of the process.
