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

Our “Planet” rating evaluates brands based on the environmental policies in their supply chains, from carbon emissions and Wastewater to business models and product circularity. Here we rate Rive Droite “Great”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It uses a high proportion of lower-impact materials including upcycled materials.
  • It uses lower-impact materials that help limit the chemicals, water, and wastewater in its Supply Chain.
  • It takes meaningful action to reduce emissions from transportation and distribution.
  • The brand prioritises recyclable textiles by minimising its use of fibre blends.
  • It uses recycled packaging.

Workers’ rights are central to our “People” rating, which assess brands’ policies and practices on everything from child labour to living wages and gender equality. Here we rate Rive Droite “It's a Start”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It traces all of its supply chain.
  • It finances independent seamstresses in Morocco to set up their own workshops.
  • It’s not clear if it ensures workers are paid living wages in its supply chain.

Brands’ animal welfare policies and, where applicable, how well they trace their animal-derived products are the focus of our “Animals” rating. Here we rate Rive Droite “Good”. It doesn’t appear to use animal-derived materials but doesn’t claim to be a vegan brand.

Based on all publicly available information we’ve reviewed, we rate Rive Droite “Good” overall.
