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


Charlie Mae Swimwear's environment rating is 'good'. It uses a high proportion of eco-friendly materials including recycled materials. 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 'it's a start'. 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. There is no evidence it ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain. It audits some of its supply chain including all of the final stage of production.

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.

Charlie Mae Swimwear is rated 'Good' overall.
