Our ratings are based on a scale from 1 (We avoid) to 5 (Great) How we rate


BAY Active's environment rating is 'it's a start'. It uses a medium proportion of eco-friendly materials including organic cotton. There is no evidence it minimises textile waste when manufacturing its products. There is no evidence it is taking specific steps to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. However its use of eco-friendly materials reduces its climate impact and limits the amount of chemicals, water and wastewater used in production.

Its labour rating is 'good'. There is no evidence it has a Code of Conduct but it has a formal statement covering workers rights. It traces most of its supply chain. It is unclear whether it ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain. Its final stage of production is audited by Fair Wear Foundation or Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Its animal rating is 'good'. It does not use fur, leather, down, exotic animal skin, exotic animal hair or angora. It states that it sources wool from non-mulesed sheep.

BAY Active is rated 'Good' overall.
