Are you operating at a normal speed or is COVID-19 causing any delays in shipping?
Fortunately, our production partners are currently working with a 48 hour production time for small orders. However, production time for larger orders may take 2-4 days.
Production time is the time frame in which your order is received and processed, then printed and packaged for shipping. Shipping time is a separate time frame and varies depending on your shipping location and requested delivery method. Shipping times may also be affected depending on the carrier as they may be experiencing delays due to COVID-19.
We are taking every precaution to ensure the health and safety of our production partner's employees, our shipping carrier partners, their communities, as well you, the customer.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time and will update you on any changes.
ETHICAL, ENVIRONMENTAL, AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Is your clothing ethically made?
Yes, absolutely! We only partner with manufacturers who meet or exceed the standards of governing laws and have received industry accreditation in regards to fair labor, safety, well-maintained working conditions, and environmentally conscious business practices.
Our select partners include manufacturers that have received accreditation from WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production), which is a globally recognized, independent 3rd party certifying body whose mission is to promote ethical, humane and lawful conditions and practices in all manufacturing facilities.
Our Premium Collection has been certified with the Oeko-tex Standard 100 seal. This means that our select manufacturer partner has been verified for the safety of products and their production processes for health and the environment. This includes the testing of any harmful substances at all processing levels and certify the environmentally and socially responsible production conditions of production facilities. The OEKO-TEX® partner institutes are authorized to conduct tests and audits in accordance with internationally standardized guidelines. To ensure statutory conformity in consumer and environmental protection, the criteria catalogue is continuously updated and expanded.
Our Premium Organic Tee shirt manufacturer has obtained the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), which is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
They have also ensured to meet the Textile Exchange’s Organic Content Standard (OCS), which is a chain of custody standard that provides companies with a tool to verify that one or more specific input material is in a final product. It requires that each organization along the supply chain take sufficient steps to ensure that the integrity and identity of the input material is preserved.
Each manufacturing partner is committed to maintaining and upholding responsible workplace and environmental standards. There are absolutely no sweatshops used in the production of any Vegan As Fvck products.
Vegan As Fvck adheres to the essential moral values of honesty, integrity, kindness, compassion and perseverance in our daily business practices and everyday life.
Our select clothing manufacturers have established effective waste reduction procedures that ensure all manufacturing waste is reduced, reused, or recycled. They use the most efficient machines as possible, resulting in seven times less water usage than most clothing manufacturers. This saves 24 million gallons a week compared to other manufacturers out there. Any water they use goes through a filtration system that allows it to be recycled.
Their cutting and sewing rooms floors are all solar-powered, and all fabric that isn’t turned into T-shirts becomes part of their robust recycling initiatives. That means that excess material is then turned into tiles, pillow stuffing, children’s bibs, etc. They also encourages employees to live green lifestyles with many electric car-charging stations available around their office space.
Zero Waste Mindset
One of our primary manufacturer's facilities is headquartered in Los Angeles, CA. They produce almost no landfill because they recycle everything that can't be turned into a tee. They've optimized the cutting process to reduce plastic use and any excess fabric is recycled into various other products. It's not only cost-efficient, it's eco-consciously the only way to go!
Our manufacturing partners minimize waste in packaging and source eco-friendly packaging materials. Recyclable or biodegradable materials are used as much possible. Bubble wraps are made from a minimum of 15% recycled plastic and 10% post-consumer content. Kraft tubes are made from 70-100% post-consumer recycled content and 0-30% secondary recycled content.
We make sure to collaborate with like-minded green companies in an effort to decrease our carbon footprint as much as possible. We ship products from the nearest facility location to your home or business to decrease emissions from the delivery process. We also eliminate the use of paper to help make an impact against deforestation and paper waste. This reduces the amount of methane from paper rotting. Methane is another type of greenhouse gas emission, more potent than CO2, that contributes to the greenhouse effect and climate change.
Social Awareness and Care
Every single manufacturing employee is treated with dignity and respect, and are constantly aware of our environmental impact. A tough accreditation to receive, WRAP certifies its suppliers based on twelve principles which range from health and safety to environment to the prohibition of forced labor. Our partnered manufacturers have received a platinum certification, which is the highest level possible. In addition, our select manufacturers commit to the principles set forth by the International Labor Organization (ILO), and the Fair Labor Association (FLA).
Love and Respect for All
We ensure that our select manufacturers do not participate in any form of cruelty to animals whatsoever. We do our best to protect animal welfare and ensure that no animals are hurt or harmed during the production of the garment or any other products we sell. It also means that our products do not contain any animal byproducts.
