LSTN Crepe Records Ethics

 

"To bring beautifully designed ethical products to music lovers"

We at Crepe Records have proactively selected to work with companies who are socially responsible in how they run their businesses. This not only reflects on our beliefs, but also on what we provide to you as our customers. Our passion is for the products we offer to be both desirable and ethical, making you feel good about wearing it, as well as looking good dressed in it!  Everything, from raw materials to production and packaging, has been created in collaboration with the best suppliers, who care about their people and the environment, and we are proud to be working with them. 

Ethical Manufacturing & Justice for Workers 

Our suppliers don't use child labour or forced labour and maintain safe and healthy working conditions.  They ensure that legal labour contracts are in place and that there is no discrimination against employees, no excessive   work hours and that their employees are fairly paid a living wage. Our clothing suppliers also hold compliance certifications, such as SA8000, BSCI, SAFE, GOTS. None of our clothing is made in sweatshops, and the suppliers we work with are regularly independently audited by the non-profit NGO the Fair Wear Foundation. You will find the relevant information in the size chart of each garment.

Fair Wear Foundation The Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) works to improve labour conditions in the garment industry. Crepe records fully supports Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) which is shown by the red hanger logo that you will see on our swing tags. We are passionate about supporting FWF, as this promotes fair labour conditions in the garment industry worldwide. 

 

EJF -Clean Cotton Campaign    

Our clothing is only made using raw cotton from Turkey, Bangladesh, and India, and not Uzbek cotton. Uzbek cotton is sadly still produced using slave and child labour. We have clearly stated where each of our garments originates from and this is shown on the care label on the inside of the garment. Some of our T shirts are made of 100 % organic cotton and some of them are a mix of bamboo and cotton, both materials are sustainable. In support of the Environmental Justice Foundation's Clean Cotton Campaign, we have sourced our garments from supplier who can guarantee where their raw cotton supply is from and where the garments are made.  

GOTS certified

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from  organic fibres. Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can be GOTs certified. Our garments that have this certification have been manufactured to meet high standards of environmental and social criteria throughout the entire organic textiles supply chain. Organic Certified by CU819434

Confidence in Textiles

Confidence in Textles stamp means that our garments have been through independent testing for harmful substances and according to OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 for textile products of all types, products that pass these tests pose no risks to health (since 1992).
Organic Content Standard

This standard guarantees the traceability and integrity of the raw materials during all manufacturing stages. The term OCS blended is used for garments that contain 5% minimum of organic material blended with conventional or synthetic raw materials.
Carbon Footprint

 

The carbon footprint (CO2e) is the total carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and other greenhouse gases emitted during the cultivation and harvesting of cotton, fibre processing, textile production, packaging, transportation and warehousing.  This label means that the carbon footprint for this garment has been reduced by 90% through a combination of innovative product design, low impact organic agriculture, efficiency in manufacturing, and by replacing standard grid electricity with renewable wind power. 

Fair Trade

The British Association for Fair Trade Shops & Suppliers applies to our ethical supplier of scarves and pashminas. Fair Trade shops and suppliers promote social justice for the producers of the goods they sell. BAFTS members work together to create an alternative model to conventional international trade, in which human rights are at the top of their agenda and is recognised by the WFTO (World Fair Trade Organisation).
