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


Charlee Swim's environment rating is 'great'. It uses a high proportion of eco-friendly materials including recycled materials. It manufactures locally to reduce its carbon footprint. It reuses all of its offcuts to minimise textile waste. Its use of eco-friendly materials limits the amount of chemicals, water and wastewater used in production.

Its labour rating is 'good'. Its final stage of production is undertaken in Australia, a low risk country for labour abuse. There is no evidence it has a Code of Conduct but it has a formal statement covering workers rights. It traces all of its supply chain. It is unclear whether it ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain.

This brand makes products that are generally free of animal materials so it is not applicable to rate its impact on animals. We calculate the overall rating from environment and labour scores only.

Charlee Swim is rated 'Great' overall.
