The order has just been confirmed! All 2009 CAT t-shirts will be ethically produced by Starworld of Africa, independently certified by WRAP.
Hotbox Events has long been a supporter of environmentally and ethically conscious working practices and we are delighted to be able to extend that to our volunteer t-shirts from now on.
Starworld of Africa recognizes its responsibilities to its workers for the conditions under which it manufactures its clothing. By operating their own production plants, they can guarantee that their clothing products are manufactured to the highest environmental, fair trade and ethical standards.
The clothing complies with the Oeko-Tex 100 standard and all garments are manufactured by trained personnel, operating under fair, safe and well paid working conditions.
Starworld's working conditions are independently examined by WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production), a charitable foundation based in the USA promoting humane, ethical, and lawful conditions and practices in manufacturing globally.
