We take the sourcing of our products seriously. We try to ensure that we buy products from ethical sources and from a manufacturer that takes an active interest in minimising their impact on the environment.
We ask all of our suppliers to supply information that allows us to grade their products as to how ethically traded they are. We grade each spectacle frame out of a total of 10.
This is the questionnaire we give out, and the manufacturer’s responses will be published here soon.
Simon was recently asked to write a blog about the issues of ethical sourcing for the magazine “Ethical Consumer.” This be accessed here Ethical Consumer – Ethical Sourcing Blog
The blog was edited to fit the magazine. The full article can be accessed here
