MELAWEAR directly contributes to an improvement of the living conditions in India through producing all textiles certified by GOTS and Fairtrade. At the same time the social development in Germany plays a significant role for the company. Therefore MELAWEAR cooperates with the charitable company Hipsy that handles the logistics.
HiPsy and MELAWEAR
Since 2003 Hipsy employs people with mental health issues in Buchholz in der Nordheide. In this way the institution facilitates social participation for people suffering from mental health issues. They receive support through different ways of care. Besides part-residential and outpatient help, the employment in various workshops plays an important role. In cooperation with MELAWEAR, a logistics unit was established for the packing and shipping all MELAWEAR products.
Furthermore, MELAWEAR started the concept of “FAIRpacker” in cooperation with Hipsy. All packages are stamped with a “FAIRpackt” stamp that is signed by a Hipsy employee. In this way every package is individualized.
The shipping of MELAWEAR products proceeds in collaboration with DHL Go Green. DHL Go Green supports projects for climate protection and in this way balances all emissions produced by shipping the products.
These projects can be subdivided into categories such as “energy efficiency”, “renewable energies” and “(re)forestation”. At the same time DHL Go Green stands for the adherence to highest ecological standards throughout the whole shipping process.
