HINE COLLECTIONS SUSTAINABILITY AND ETHICAL PRACTICES
OUR APPROACH TO MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN OUR COMMUNITIES AND OUR ENVIROMENT:
Here at Hine Collection we aim to do our best in playing our part to help protect Papatūāanuku (mother earth) and our Taiao (our environment). We are slowly making changes & will continue to improve our practices to achieve our mission.
Hine Collection is designed right here in Aotearoa however they are manufactured in China with our two main trusted suppliers. We have & will continue to visit our factories yearly to make sure that they continue to align with our core values & practices. We visit the factories to make sure that the workers are working in an ethical environment & condition. Both of our suppliers carry a high standard & have documented reports of BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) from external audits.
For all future releases staring from 10th July 2020 all Hine products will be packaged in bio-degradable & compostable packaging. The bags that the items are sent in can be re used for packing travel items & other needs to hopefully reduce waste.
All Hine orders sent to our customers are sent in a custom-made bio-degradable/compostable bags made from sustainably sourced plants.
Our future goals for Hine Collection to be more sustainable in the future:
FABRIC & MATERIALS:
Our mission & goal by 2021 is to have as many sustainable fabrics and materials in our product lines. What we will do is research & source recycled fabrics such as recycled polyester for our leggings & sports bra’s by working alongside our factories in China. We create each product with long lasting wear in mind. Our factories are fully aware of our mission and goals here at Hine Collection for a sustainable future for our Taiao (our environment). With our trusted working relationship with our factories we will work together to achieve our mission.
We have teamed up with our third-party logistics company to work towards better processes for all of our imports coming out of China. Our goal for 2021 is for all of our imports out of china to be shipped via sea freight to eliminate gas emissions.
