HOW WE RATE OUR CONSCIOUS PRODUCTS
By shopping Positively Conscious products, you’re supporting pioneering brands that have made sustainable values part of their identity. Read on to find out more about the sustainability benchmarks for our Positively Conscious label and our partnership with Good On You.
OUR CONSCIOUS CRITERIA
In order to be awarded our Positively Conscious label, a product must meet one or more of the below sustainability criteria. If a product isn’t labeled as Positively Conscious, that means it doesn’t meet these standards – they’re deliberately high, so not all of our pieces will be eligible. If a brand does not qualify, some of its individual products may still be able to.
ECO-FRIENDLY MATERIALS AND PROCESSES
A product for which the main material is made with 50% or more eco-friendly or certified materials (e.g. organic, recycled and upcycled fabrics or materials recognized as meeting independent standards, such as linen, lyocell and ramie); or a product that has been created with a certified production process (e.g. Fairtrade, Fairmined, Climate Neutral or Forest Stewardship Council).
RATED BY GOOD ON YOU
A product comes from a brand that scores well on ethical ratings agency Good On You. Large brands need to score a minimum of four out of five to qualify as Positively Conscious, while small brands must score three out of five. Find out more about the Good On You rating system below.
