Social Responsibility, Product Safety and Bulletin Brands Inc: What Sets Us Apart
Product safety and responsible labor practices are top priorities for Bulletin Brands Inc and something we take very seriously. How have we integrated the spirit of social responsibility into our business?
All of our items come from US or Canadian based suppliers. Some of the suppliers’ factories make their products domestically and some import them from overseas. Since Bulletin Brands Inc does not own these factories, EACH supplier is researched and screened to ensure they meet the highest standards of product safety and corporate social responsibility. For more information on product safety, please read our FAQ.
Bulletin Brands Inc was one of the first to achieve ‘Product Safety Aware’ status in the Promotional Products Association International (PPAI) Product Safety Awareness Program. We have demonstrated our commitment to product safety by actively engaging our workforce and adopting a corporate culture prioritizing product safety compliance training and a commitment to continuing education.
Additionally, Bulletin Brands has adopted the PPAI Code of Conduct, an industry-focused statement of principles designed to clarify expectations regarding product safety, social, and environmental assurances. Bulletin Brands Inc only partners with suppliers that have also adopted this code.
