At BIDBI we believe people are the most important part of any organisation, they should be paid a living wage and enjoy good working conditions, free from harassment. BIDBI are therefore fully committed to a supply chain that is ethical and ecologically sound, that's why both our UK factory and our trusted partners in India are registered with Fairtrade or are members of SEDEX (Supplier Data Ethical Exchange).
We work closely with our global partners, talking to them daily and visiting them periodically, so we can guarantee that your bags have genuine ethical provenance, as well as being a high quality, natural product, giving you as a customer peace of mind your bags have come from an ethical and reputable source.
We take career progression and vocational training seriously. Continuous learning and a commitment to always doing our best is a way of life at BIDBI.
Our bags are made of 100% natural materials only and at our Sheffield based factory we specialise in environmentally-friendly production methods. Using ISO 14001 inks and having dedicated recycling bins are simple ways in which we are putting our ecological policy into practice. Operating sustainably is of high importance to us, we are continually working on and improving our environmental impact within the community and on a wider scale.
