Ethical Sourcing and Environmental Impact

Updated by Milk+Blush

Ethical Sourcing and Environmental Impact

As one of the longest established hair extension suppliers, for over two decades Milk + Blush has developed strong relationships with supplier factories and their supply chain.  Ethical sourcing of our products is imperative, and we encourage our suppliers to exceed the requirements within our Ethical Sourcing Policy and to reduce their environmental impact; highlights of which follow:

Ethical Hair Sourcing

Our policy prohibits the abuse of human rights, exploitation and coercion in the supply chain. All hair is freely and fairly sold or exchanged, and we only award business to suppliers who commit to our standards.

Labour Standards

Suppliers are expected to uphold high standard in the supply chain. This includes ensuring fair wages, safe working conditions, and adherence to local and international labour laws. We strictly prohibit forced and child labour and support workers' rights to freedom.

Health and Safety

Suppliers are expected to have ongoing audits to detect and avoid potential hazards in the workplace.  Suppliers must be committed to the ongoing health and safety of their employees.

Respect for the Individual

We require suppliers to respect the rights of the individual, to not discriminate or harass and to treat individuals with respect and dignity.

Business Integrity

Suppliers must conduct business to the highest ethical standards and comply with domestic and international laws.

Environment Impact

Milk + Blush uses only green energy sources at our headquarters and we mostly work paper-free.  Where possible we always choose recycled and recyclable materials for our product packaging. Suppliers must seek to reduce unnecessary waste and commit to reducing their carbon footprint. To recycle where possible and switch to more environmentally friendly sources.  Additionally, Milk + Blush has partnered with Matter of Trust, a company which makes special hair mats from old hair extensions to use in the clearing of ocean oil spills.

Maintaining Standards 

Regular audits ensure commitments to standards are maintained in addition to ongoing and open discussion with suppliers.  Finally, policies are reviewed to seek areas for continued improvement.
