Brand: Honest Basics
Honest Basics makes beautiful basics from GOTS certified cotton. The clothing is made in one partner factory in Bangladesh, where the working conditions are good. The factory is also GOTS certified, which indicates that the factory works under safe and healthy working conditions and provides living wages. Honest Basics visits the factory once a year to see this with its own eyes. Within the factory there are different people working with different tasks, who receive a different wage per task. The lowest wage that is paid is higher than the minimum wage in Bangladesh, but it is not generous. To do something extra for these people, campaigns are often organized: for example, food or clothing is distributed around the national holidays. Honest Basics is also involved in supporting the employees of the factory. Honest basics is aware of the environmental impact that clothing can have and that is why they are currently in the process of becoming fully circular and analyzing how much CO2 there is in the cycle of a garment to reduce this amount.
