Well done to these companies. I urge them both to maintain vigilance in ensuring their purchasing processes and clothing suppliers show integrity and responsibility for upholding safety and protection for garment workers. I am relieved to be able to again shop at these stores knowing that they are committed to a legally binding agreement to uphold the safety of Bangladeshi garment workers.

Thank you for your email received today regarding our offshore manufacturing process in Bangladesh. Perm-A-Pleat Schoolwear have not manufactured any garments in Bangladesh since 2011. As company we insist on a very strict and thorough code of conduct contract with each and every factory that we deal with both in Australia and off-shore and every one of these factories is personally visited and inspected and then selected by the owner and Managing Director of our company before any garments are produced.
