    Our Impact Badges help us to determine which brands to partner with. Each brand must meet at least 2 of these badges and be able to provide confirmation on how they display these values. Each brand page displays what Impact Badges that brand meets.

    It also helps you, as our customer, to be able to shop the brands that embody the values you personally hold. If you want to support brands that are Fair Trade, for example, than you can do so by clicking on the link below the badge and you'll be taken to a page that displays only the product that meets this Impact Badge.

    Fair Trade - Impact Badges - Thread Harvest - Ethical fashion

     FAIR TRADE

    Fair Trade certified products ensure that producers abide by 10 principles that extend to ensuring opportunities for disadvantaged farmers, fair payment, protection of basic rights, rejection of child and forced labour from supply chains, decent working conditions and respect for the environment. When you buy Fair Trade you are helping to challenge the culture of exploitation so evident in the manufacturing industry today and ensuring that the lives of all the people who help to produce your clothes and accessories are cared for and respectfully supported.

    Employing the Marginalised - Impact Badge - Thread Harvest - Ethical Fashion

    EMPLOYING THE MARGINALISED

    In every society you can find different groups of people who exist on the margins because of class, ethnic group, religious affiliation, gender, disability and status (refugee status included). On these bases they are often excluded from gainful employment, political participation, and access to health, education and other essential services. By purchasing from our brands that employ marginalised people you are helping them to be socially and economically included through employment opportunities, skills development and access to basic necessities.

    Empowering Women - Impact Badge - Thread Harvest - ethical fashion

    EMPOWERING WOMEN

    A Chinese Proverb writes that “women hold up half the sky” and yet, when we look around, there seems to be a large gap between that proverb and reality. Women continue to have less access to education, work in demeaning and unsafe conditions (if they can find employment at all), are not fairly paid and often suffer from exploitation and abuse. By purchasing from our women’s empowerment range you are enabling women to “hold up half the sky” by providing meaningful work, with additional skills development, financial literacy training, professional mentoring and fair pay.

    Organic - Impact Badge - Thread Harvest - Ethical Fashion

    ORGANIC

    Organic certified products seek to ensure the producer reduces pressure on environmental ecosystems throughout the entire production cycle - production, processing, labelling, transportation, and importation. All materials produced in organic or bio-dynamic systems prohibit the use of hazardous chemical pesticides, herbicides, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). And unlike more traditional farming practices, insects and disease are dealt with through natural remedies. When you buy Organic products you are helping to ensure respect for the environment and yourself.

    Eco- friendly - Impact Badge - Thread Harvest - Ethical Fashion

    ECO-FRIENDLY

    Eco-friendly certification ensures that the producer of the products you buy does not adopt practices harmful to the environment. In this way, these products are to be considered “earth-friendly.” Production practices seek to conserve energy and water, while at the same time limiting pollution of water, land and air by not using toxic materials, like pesticides and herbicides. You can trust that your purchasing of Eco-Friendly products will ensure human safety and won’t be depleting natural ecosystems.

    Upcycled - Impact badges - Thread Harvest - Ethical Fashion

    UPCYCLING

    Upcycling involves the repurposing of waste materials, byproducts, useless, or unwanted items into new products that have new and improved value to the consumer. Unlike recycling that breaks down items into their base materials to be made into something entirely different and of lesser quality, upcycling simply refashions items for new purposes. By purchasing upcycled products you are helping to reduce landfill, waste, energy costs and the burden on the environment, while encouraging a spirit of creativity and ingenuity in producers.

    Cause Supporting - Impact Badges - Thread Harvest - Ethical Fashion

    CAUSE 

    SUPPORTING

    Thread Harvest works in partnership with social enterprises around the world. Social enterprises operate differently from traditional companies by using their commercial strategies to make a positive impact on human and environmental wellbeing. We are in the business of identifying companies that are developing new and innovative ways to create sustainable change, by putting people and the environment at the centre of their business models. For example, Article 22 funds demining in South-East Asia, Starfish Project funds the rescue and rehabilitation of women rescued from sexual exploitation and Conscious Step funds therapeutic food packs for malnourished kids in Sub Saharan Africa, Cambodia and Pakistan. Join us in changing the shape of worldwide business practices through cause supporting projects.

    Living Wage - Thread Harvest - ethical fashion

    LIVING WAGE

    The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights affirms that everyone who works has the right to just and favourable remuneration ensuring for themselves and their family an existence worthy of human dignity. Living wage conditions ensure that workers are paid a wage sufficient to cover basic necessities while also generating some savings, particularly to protect their families against economic shocks. By purchasing products that provide a living wage you are helping workers to afford shelter, food, healthcare and other basic necessities.
