This early summer, we were blessed to be able to have a booth at Jærdagen in Bryne, Norway. Hanne Fellers (founder) shared at the morning service in the center of town. We had some awesome conversations with people and was especially inspired by a young girl that came up to our booth and specifically asked if our clothes were ethically produced and if we made sure there were no children working in the factories. It was inspiring conversing with someone so young and conscious about how apparel is being made. We assured her that we only work with people who will sign off on our production agreement that states:
As a manufacturer and affiliate of factories that manufactures garments produced and sold to/for Passport 2 Freedom, I state that all practices in the production of these garments comply with the following:
- All local, national and international laws, treaties, conventions, rules, direc tives legislations and ordinances regulating labor and child labor.
- Employment and employment practices terms, wages and hours, including non-discrimination and equal employment opportunities, health and safety, environmental regulations, and laws that govern human trafficking and slavery prohibition.
- In accordance with the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, part of the California Environmental Protection Agency, our company agrees that it complies with all environmental standards, including but not limited to, Proposition 65. Prohibiting listed chemicals to be discharged into sources of drinking water. The list contains a wide range of naturally occurring and synthetic chemicals that are known to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm. We ensure these chemicals are not involved in manufac turing, or as by products in the production process.
Thank-you Jærdagen for having us. And thank-you to everyone who stopped by out booth and donated to our Cause.
