Our Stance Against Modern Slavery
It’s a tragic fact that millions of people around the world are trapped in modern day slavery to feed our desire for goods like home furnishings. When sisters Katie and Sarah Lambert established Lambert Home, they quickly learned that in order to avoid inadvertently supporting human rights violations, they would need to deeply investigate each company they partnered with. While this takes some legwork, we strongly believe that we must do our part to only source ethically-made goods and support only slave-free manufacturing.
We go through painstaking efforts with each and every manufacturer we deal with, to ensure the level of integrity with which they're running their business. We are pretty particular about our standards too! When we pick a manufacturer, we have to speak to the person who has actually been to the overseas factories. The person who has seen the workers, and knows their names and has experienced firsthand the living conditions is the only person we trust to know the full story.
We want to offer you and your family the opportunity to make a difference in the global economy by choosing ethically-manufactured home goods!
