Sustainability Criteria

At Affinity Wholesale we do our best to give as much transparency and certainty in respect of the wholesale items offered on our website. Everything on the Affinity Wholesale website must at the minimum belong to two categories. Most products belong to more than two Sustainability Criteria categories.

In general, all the items offered by Affinity Wholesale espouse ethical, environmental and social aspects.

The Sustainability Criteria is compiled to the best of Affinity Wholesale’s knowledge and belief ethics. We are always open to suggestions and welcome any constructive comments.
