How sustainable is the production of MYoMY products?
MYoMY bags are produced Fairtrade and environmental friendly. The leather MYoMY uses is LWG certified which means strict control of compliance with all environmental regulations. The leather is tanned with less chrome. This means a low use of toxic chemicals and heavy metals that are replaced by less toxic ones. The leather gets tested frequently by the SGS.
Our producing partners always take sustainable water and energy use into account.
Are the producers that MYoMY works with Fairtrade?
MYoMY is Fairtrade guaranteed. Within all our workshops we strictly monitor compliance with the 10 principles of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO):
• Creating opportunities for economically subordinated producers
• Transparency and strict control for compliance
• Good business practice
• Fair remuneration
• No child’s labour and no forced labour
• Non-discriminating workplace, equal treatment of men and women
• Good labour conditions
• Promotion of Fair Trade
• Environmental friendly production and trade
We now work with Leatherina in Bangladesh as producing partner. Leatherina is on her way of becoming WFTO certified herself. By working together closely we can asure that the 10 WFTO principles are being followed.
What about labour conditions?
A Fairtrade brand certification ensures compliance with the 10 principles of the WFTO (mentioned above). This is checked by means of a yearly audit. The MYoMY team visits the producers 2 to 4 times a year and manages a close and long-term relationship. The Indian organizations even have employers that educate smaller, related companies in India about gender equality, child’s labour and standing up for your rights. MYoMY ensures that producers can take care of their families, especially focused on education, health care and personal development.In our production units, both women and men are employed and they are equally treated. The producers receive a fair remuneration and work under good circumstances, as recorded in the WFTO (World Fair Trade Organization). We believe that by empowered connections and collaborations we can create a chain of empowerment. Because someone who is empowered, often empowers someone else.
