FIRST BASE ETHICAL PRACTICES

ALL FIRST BASE AND FIRST BASE FIT GARMENTS ARE DESIGNED IN BONDI, AUSTRALIA.
OUR GARMENTS ARE MANUFACTURED IN VARIOUS PARTS OF CHINA AND
ARE PROUDLY ETHICALLY PRODUCED.

SO, WHAT DOES THAT REALLY MEAN?

LET’S BREAK IT DOWN.

IT’S ABOUT TRANSPARENCY

BEING ETHICALLY PRODUCED MEANS THAT WE HAVE ALL OF OUR FACTORIES INDEPENDENTLY AUDITED BY A THIRD PARTY TO ENSURE THAT THEY ARE WRAP (WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBLE ACCREDITED PRODUCTION) COMPLIANT.

THE WRAP CERTIFICATION HAS 12 KEY PRINCIPLES THAT MUST BE MET:

  1. COMPLIANCE WITH LOCAL LAWS
  2. PROHIBITION OF FORCED LABOUR
  3. PROHIBITION OF CHILD LABOUR
  4. PROHIBITION OF HARASSMENT AND ABUSE
  5. COMPENSATION & BENEFITS
  6. HOURS OF WORK
  7. PROHIBITION OF DISCRIMINATION
  8. HEALTH & SAFETY
  9. FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION
  10. ENVIRONMENT
  11. CUSTOMS COMPLIANCE
  12. SECURITY

TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT EACH OF THESE PRINCIPLES YOU CAN CHECK OUT THE WRAP WEBSITE : WWW.WRAPCOMPLIANCE.ORG

WE BELIEVE IN DOING THINGS RIGHT

OUR FACTORIES ARE AUDITED BI-ANNUALLY TO ENSURE THESE STANDARDS ARE UPHELD. PLUS, OUR TEAM ALSO VISITS OUR FACTORIES ANNUALLY SO WE CAN PHYSICALLY SEE HOW BUSINESS IS BEING DONE.

BEING ETHICALLY PRODUCED IS IMPORTANT TO US BECAUSE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS BEING MET, STANDARDS THAT YOU OR I WOULD ABSOLUTELY EXPECT IN OUR WORKING ENVIRONMENT. THE MORE COMPANIES AND PEOPLE THAT INITIATE THESE AUDITS AND ENSURE SAFE AND FAIR WORKING ENVIRONMENTS FOR ALL, THE SOONER IT WILL BECOME THE NORM.

BY ACCEPTING TO WORK WITH FACTORIES THAT DO NOT PROVIDE ETHICAL CONDITIONS FOR THEIR EMPLOYEES, WE WOULD BE IN TURN CONDONING THE PRACTICE. AS A RESULT OF THIS, FIRST BASE IS COMMITTED TO ONLY WORKING WITH FACTORIES THAT ARE OPERATING IN AN ETHICAL FASHION AND IT IS AT THE FOREFRONT OF OUR MIND TO CONTINUALLY MONITOR OUR SUPPLY CHAIN TO ENSURE THE BEST WORKING CONDITIONS FOR EVERYONE INVOLVED WITH OUR BRAND.

THE SUPPLY CHAIN
