According to the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010, manufacturers are required to provide consumers with information regarding our efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from our supply chains.
We, BendtheTrend.Today (“BendtheTrend.Today,” “we,” or “us”), are a part of the industry that can educate consumers on how to purchase goods produced by companies that responsibly manage their supply chains. Therefore, recognizing the importance of transparency in supply chains, we hereby make the following disclosures:
BendtheTrend.Today is committed to ensuring ethical and fair-labor practices within our own operations and we seek and expect from our suppliers to do the same. When we partner with suppliers, we ask them to sign an Anti-slavery or Forced labour certificate acknowledging that the supplier will comply with all applicable laws that prohibit slavery and human trafficking.
We at BendtheTrend.Today have also drafted our own Supplier Code of Conduct that intends to set forth our standards and expectations with respect to key areas of corporate responsibility, including a requirement for our suppliers not to support forced labor and not to collaborate with organizations that use illegal employment practices.
Although BendtheTrend.Today does not currently provide specialized training on slavery and human trafficking to its staff working with supply chains, we require that all employees engaged in the sourcing process comply with our policies, including our Code of Conduct, which prohibits slavery and human trafficking within our supply chain.
Currently, BendtheTrend.Today does not conduct independent audits or unannounced inspections to our direct suppliers. Nonetheless, we plan to establish such protocols to be implemented in the future.
