Ethical Trading

As part of our (PLAYA London Ltd) #AntiPlastic campaign, we try to minimise the use of plastic, worldwide.
All our products and packaging do not contain any plastic.
3GBP from each sale will be donated to Plastic Oceans UK; a charity ambitiously trying to get people to reconsider how they use plastic and to stop plastic reaching the oceans within a generation.
Our cotton is produced without the use of pesticides and fertilisers. No GM seeds are used during production. 
The absence of fertilisers means water doesn’t run the risk of getting contaminated, which has a knock on effect in our local environment by enabling positive biodiversity.

Commitment to Ethical Trading

Playa London Ltd recognise the need to communicate our commitment to key stakeholders including suppliers and the people who work with our suppliers. We seek to develop long term relationships with our suppliers who share our ethical standards. These relationships are based on the principle of fair, open and honest dealings at all times. Only suppliers that share our standards and can demonstrate compliance will be considered appropriate to trade with.

Ethical Trading Code

Suppliers shall at all times comply with this code and with the applicable national and international laws, regulations, codes and standards, both in the country in which the supplier works and in the country in which the product and/or services are sourced/provided. Suppliers shall ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, that their suppliers, agent(s), subcontractors and consultants, who are directly or indirectly involved in the provision of goods and/or services to Playa London Ltd comply with the code.

Suppliers shall ensure:

Workers have the right to join or form trade unions of their own choosing and to bargain collectively.
The employer adopts an open attitude towards the activities of trade unions and their organisational activities.
Workers’ representatives are not discriminated against and have access to carry out their representative functions in the work place.
Where the right to freedom of association and collective bargaining is restricted under law, the employer facilitates and does not hinder the development of parallel means for independent and free association.

Working conditions are safe and hygienic
A safe and hygienic working environment shall be provided, bearing in mind the prevailing knowledge of industry and of any specific hazards.
