Environmental and Social Manifesto
WE WORK HARD, WITH LOVE & KINDNESS TOWARDS EACH OTHER & THE PLANET
Here at Brix + Bailey we provide products that are made to last a lifetime. We are passionate about the environment, the ocean, our planet, and the future of our children.
THE PATH OF SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Brix + Bailey believes that it is part of its corporate and social responsibility to be involved in issues such as respect for people, environment, communities and artistic heritage.
These principles, which have always been part of the brand's activities, find expression in company culture, relations industry associations, supply chain partners and climate change.
PEOPLE - MUTUAL RESPECT, TRUST, RELIABILITY
Brix + Bailey is a diversified brand with a wonderful mix of cultures, skills and nationalities that places people at the heart of everything it does.
Social Responsibility Brix + Bailey “As a company, we be are responsible for our actions and behaviours. We are carefully reviewing the way of doing things in each area of our business, from our supply chain to the materials we use to make our collections. We view this as a long-term project open to constant review" Brix + Bailey
Brix + Bailey take their responsibility seriously to collaborate with ethical suppliers and work with companies that hold the same environmental values. The brand strives to be an honest business, and work closely with a solid supplier base that has worked with the brand since its launch. At the core of the brand is the desire to ensure customers can have full confidence in the brand and the products they are buying. To ensure this, the aim is always to try to manufacture as close to the natural origin of our Italian leathers [ the cows!] and to maintain a traceable and sustainable chain of production. Refer to the jewelry page to learn more about the new sustainably sourced and produced Brix + Bailey jewelry collection.
ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING - WASTE NOT, WANT NOT
Brix + Bailey believe that less is more. Buy less and instead buy better.
We champion the use of environmentally friendly plastic-free, recyclable or biodegradable packaging wherever possible. The majority of the packaging we use consists of paper and card. We continue this ethos in our design studios, aiming to be zero-waste and plastic free by reducing the amount of plastic we use, ensuring that we recycle everything we can and using re-usable alternatives instead.
ENVIRONMENT & CLIMATE CHANGE
All suppliers have a transparent relationship with Brix + Bailey and as a result they share information of environmental impact and ways to improve. As a result, all collaborators have reduced their waste, recycling has increased and new and innovative ways of working with leather and within the fashion industry are always open to discussion.
CODE OF ETHICS
Brix + Bailey's Code of Ethics, adopted since 2014 and shared with all employees and external partners, establishes the guiding principles of the brand: mutual trust, reliability and respect.
As a member of Textile Exchange and through our participation in conferences and events, the brand keep agile and up-to-date with new developments in the leather industry.
