Colour Junkie Cosmetics has chosen to align with these 3 causes for reasons that are close our hearts. We believe that every woman and child deserves the right to live free and that no animal be harmed in the name of fashion.
Colour Junkie imports its products direct form China to our New Zealand base and distributes to our New Zealand customers direct. This makes us particularly aware of the ethical standards for manufacturing and distribution from within China and to New Zealand.
We have endeavoured to ensure that our factory distribution centres in China are at an acceptable level of fair trade and are proud to partner with Tear Fund New Zealand in its Anti-trafficking and Exploitation cause.
Women's Refuge is close to the heart of Colour Junkie. We know that women and families involved in domestic violence have been one of the most vulnerable yet unseen people in or communities. That's why we have partnered with Women's Refuge in an effort to support change through the activities they initiate through their National Organisation.
"Women’s Refuge is New Zealand’s only national provider working to protect women and children from domestic violence. They provide immediate impact and drive long term transformative change by providing frontline support, raising awareness and educating for violence prevention, and collaborating with key partners. Their vision is for all women and children in New Zealand/Aotearoa to live free from family and domestic violence.'
"People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 6.5 million members and supporters.PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in the food industry, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of rodents, birds, and other animals who are often considered “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals.PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns."
