Our 7 Point Buying Process

Where was it made, by whom, and in what conditions?

During the decades of rampant globalisation, such questions were rarely asked. Today, ensuring more transparent supply chains and production cycles is increasingly important worldwide. Transparency directly impacts on customers’ trust in the product, and sustainability performance. Hive will stock high quality items from suppliers who are socially, economically and environmentally responsible, so everyone gets a fair deal. This shift in responsible consumption goes hand-in-hand with a heightened consciousness toward environmental sustainability, which is no longer an option for luxury homeware. Hive’s green procurement process will ensure that items are produced and supplied in a sustainable fashion.

Specifically, Hive will aim to ensure that all its products;

  1. Are manufactured sustainably
  2. Do not contain toxic materials or ozone-depleting substances
  3. Can be recycled and/or are produced from recycled materials
  4. Are made from renewable materials where possible
  5. Do not make use of excessive packaging
  6. Are designed to be repairable and not “throwaway”
  7. Are manufactured where workers are treated fairly, and offered a fair wage and safe working environment
