Again due to our high level of sensibility on the safety of cildren’s clothing , we avoid the risks that may arise for children by not using cutting-edge materials and accessories in this product group.

Due to our sensitivity to the safety of our children products, Child Product Safety Training is compulsory for both for our employees and our suppliers.

Ecology

To produce products that do not harm human health and the environment and the presentation of ecological products to consumers have always been our primary goal.

In the last year, our 285.000 models have been tested by 850.000 ecological tests.

We make 4.500 ecological tests everyday

We are conducting 4.500 ecological tests every day in the ecological test laboratories in Turkey, China and Bangladesh to test whether our products have harmful chemicals which may be found in clothes and accessories. We also pay attention to our carbon footprint and water footprint studies along with our chemical footprint studies.

For the health of our consumers we only work with producers which undertake to produce only ecological products

We have published our Ecological Harmonization Handbook this year to make our suppliers manufacture products which are environmentally and chemically compatible with LC Waikiki standards. We inform our suppliers about our ecological policy which we are always loyal for the health of our consumers and we only work with suppliers which are suitable to this policy

Both for your and your beloved ones’ health we periodically inspect our suppliers

In case of any inconvenience that threatens consumer health and product safety, we request corrective and preventive actions from the competent authorities .

We regularly conduct risk assessments on our products according to human health and possible environmental damage.

We determine whether our products have these prohibited chemicals are found in our products by testing the pre-production and post-production samples. In the tests which are conducted after the production if any banned chemicals are detected on surfaces which will contact directly with the skin for a long time, we do not sell these products which are likely to cause harm to human health even if the production is over. When we follow the globally accepted regulations in all our evaluations and studies we consider LC Waikiki-specific standards. We considerour own standards under the world norms.

Hand in hand with

We require our suppliers to undertake that they will not to use non-prohibited chemicals which are likely to cause harm to the environment.

We also require our suppliers to undertake that they will not to use chemicals which are not likely to cause direct harm to human health but which can which are likely to cause harm to the environment.

Greenpeace In accordance with Greenpeace targets, we decided to take action until the year 2020 so that the usage of non-prohibited chemicals in textile, ready-to-wear and footwear products can be

cancelled. Starting from our country within the scope of DETOX movement, we carry out our Zero Waste Discharge studies under the name of Ecological Harmonization.

 

We cooperate with them to increase the awareness of our suppliers through systematic auditing and training activities and to make system development improvements. Again we continue to structure our value chain as part of our preparations for our carbon footprint and water footprint studies within the scope of Ecological Harmonization. In line with the above mentioned sensitivity and decisions, we began to request under-takings which will ensure the prohibited chemicals which are likely to harm the environment, not be used in their products.

We regularly conduct risk assessments on our products according to their possible damage to human health and environment.

We make our manufacturer and supplier choice in line with laboratory tests.

As a result of our various tests, manufacturers which use dyestuffs and chemicals which do not harm the environment are taking place in our new order placements, while the products of the manufacturers detected to use the chemicals that damage the environment are penalized purchased with a different evaluation system and we provide an extra deterrence.

We are implementing practices to use innocuous alternatives to chemicals that harm the environment and human health by sharing findings in the direction of the Greenpeace action plan with manufacturers found to be using harmful substances.

Within the scope of all these studies, we are actively involved in ISO and CEN international standard preparation committees as the representative of Turkey in the development of test methods which are determined by the international authorities, in the methods of detection of harmful chemicals and in the establishment of new standards for the needs.
