Our Ethical Makers
Working with conscious makers across the globe, we seek to capture pieces that are accents on their own to fill your space with wares that are classic and timeless in design.
Bringing you ethically made pieces are important to us. We have invested a lot to make sure the partners we choose abide by proper working conditions and environmental practices.
Any makers of imported goods are reviewed under BSCI code of conduct (Business Social Compliance Initiative) which looks at:
- The Rights of Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining
- Fair Remuneration
- Occupational Health and Safety
- No Bonded Labour (no child, trafficked or non-voluntary labour)
- Ethical Business Behaviour
- No Discrimination
- Decent Working Hours
- Protective of the Environment
- And more
Our Goal to Sustainability
We are only small but we try our best to minimise our impact on the environment.
Shipments from our supply chains are all in master cartons and no excessive plastic is used.
Any parcels from Paola And Joy to your home comes in a sturdy recyclable shipping box with reinforced branded paper tape, a recyclable box for most individual items, lightweight polyfoam*, Thank You card, paper packing slip and paper fill void if necessary.
*The lightweight polystyrene in the box is made up of 98% air and allows our ceramics to be in transit safely and passes ISTA drop tests. To dispose of this material, please break it apart and put it in your rubbish bin.
We are always seeking for improvements to make our business more responsible.
Thank you for getting to know us and we can't wait to bring pieces you'll love into your home.
