050 – How to Find an Ethical Factory

With the rise in demand for ethical goods how do you find an ethical factory to produce them?

The 50th episode of The Make it British Podcast is published during Fashion Revolution week. Fashion Revolution is a campaign that was set up as a reaction to the Rana Plaza disaster, which saw the collapse of a building in Dhaka, Bangladesh, which housed five garment factories causing significant loss of life.

The campaign encourages people to ask ‘Who made my clothes?’ and question the condition and standards involved in garment manufacturing.

If you’re looking to have your products manufactured, whether clothing or something else, this episode will help you decide if the factory is working in an ethical manner.

Some of the topics discussed:

– How do you define ethical?

– What should you look for and what questions should you ask?

– What is an audit and which ones should you check a factory has?

– Should you work with a factory which doesn’t have an audit?
