Ethical Mica Sourcing Policy
I asked Ere Perez if their mica is ethically sourced without forced or child labor and they responded stating,
“Thank you for your enquiry. We are aware of the social impact of sourcing mica from Indian mines. Given the nature of our business it is extremely difficult for keep traceability on the supply chain of the different ingredients we use.
For that reason we try to support organizations and initiatives focused on improving sustainable and social conditions. Some of the movements that we are already part of include:
* Green Palm (supporting producers of sustainable palm oil) – http://greenpalm.org/
* United Nations Global Compact (world’s largest sustainable initiative) – http://www.unglobalcompact.org.au/about/
* Ere Perez is Carbon Neutral Certified – http://noco2.com.au/
Lastly and coinciding with your enquiry http://www.responsible-mica-initiative.com/index.html currently does not work with business our size, but we are in contact with them and are constantly on top of updates”
