Standards of Ethics and Responsibility

I Fitz (Founder) have decided to set a strict standard of Ethics & Responsibility for Pangea Exchange, and the products that we provide to our customers. The following is how we define Fair Trade! In determining this standard, I acknowledged that I am new to this industry. Hence, I have sourced information from the authorities at the forefront of our industry. 

All of our products must be made by workers that are paid a Fair Wage, in Proper Working Conditions & in the Absence of Child Labor!

The definition of Fair Wage that Pangea Exchange uses is: a wage that is high enough to maintain a normal standard of living, and is within all national wage regulations (such as; the minimum wage, payment of wages, overtime payments, provision of paid holidays and social insurance payments).

The definition of Child Labor that Pangea Exchange uses is: work that in any way deprives children of their childhood, their potential and their dignity, and/or is harmful to physical and mental development.

To ensure that the products we list are part of the Ethical Fashion Revolution and contribute positively to our global community, we ask that our Merchants provide us with a letter from the founder of the organization that states that their products are made by workers that are paid Fair Wage, in Proper Working Conditions & in the Absence of Child Labor: Furthermore, we ask that the Merchant's letter elaborates on their long-term commitment to ethical and responsible fashion.
