The Punch encourages brands to continue practicing or to take a minimum of five responsible commitments as part of the following categories:
Minimizing carbon emissions
Local & Equal employment
Fair employment conditions
Accessible for all
Organic or sustainable purchasing
Responsible production & packaging
No single use plastic
Culture & heritage conservation
Faithfull The Brand
“Each Faithfull garment is carefully designed, sourced and produced in Bali, Indonesia, by using handmade techniques such as hand-dying and hand-printing. Our prints are inspired by findings in vintage markets and along our travels. In this way, travel plays a very special role in our design process – we love when we discover a rare and beautiful print oversees or in an exotic, unexpected location. Through our production, we maintain close relationships with all our local factories and employees after having worked directly with them for almost a decade.”

“We are committed to working towards a more sustainable future and are proud to be fully offsetting our carbon emissions each calendar year by supporting the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor, the first Australian project certified by the Gold Standard to help minimise our impact on the environment. We have calculated, accounted for and offset our CO₂-e through Carbon Neutral so that our net emissions equal zero.”

“We strive to minimize our impact on the environment. Our Bali resorts are guided by the philosophy of Tri Hita Karana. Meaning ‘the three causes of happiness’, it reflects the belief that humanity, God and the environment must all be in balance to achieve harmony. From a full sustainability management to banning plastic straws in all dining outlets at both resorts, recycling paper to make notebooks, participating to annual clean-up events and regularly donating equipment to needy communities, we are proud to be recognised as a responsible tourism operator.”
