Just In: Pre-Fall’s Best Conscious Pieces
What makes a conscious brand? By Good On You
Farfetch has teamed up with Good On You, ‘the world’s leading source for ethical fashion brand ratings’. They rate brands across three areas: environmental, social and animal welfare.
On Farfetch, every piece of clothing with the ‘positively conscious’ tag has either been rated well by Good On You, or is made with materials or certifications widely recognised as conscious.
‘We look at a brand’s impact on workers across the supply chain; from policies and practices on child labour and forced labour to worker safety, payment and freedom of association (the right to join a union). We also consider a brand’s supplier relationships and auditing practices.’
‘We consider each brand’s resource use and disposal, energy use and carbon emissions, impacts on water, as well as chemical use and disposal.’
‘We downgrade for the use of fur, angora, down feather, shearling, karakul and exotic animal skin and hair. We also consider wool use, including ‘mulesing’, and whether and how the brand uses leather.’
