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 members of SEDEX (Supplier Data Ethical Exchange).
In addition to our standard range, BIDBI is licensed to produce Fairtrade certified cotton products. Please contact us to ask about our offering of Fairtrade cotton bags.
For a bag to carry the Cotton FAIRTRADE Certification Mark the cotton farmers must meet Fairtrade Standards. From the growing and processing of the cotton to the manufacturing of the bag, all areas have to be compliant to meet the Fairtrade Standard for cotton.
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.
