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 Save the Duck “It's a Start”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It uses a medium proportion of Bluesign certified fabrics.
  • There’s no evidence it minimises textile waste in its Supply Chain.

  • There’s no evidence it supports diversity and inclusion in its supply chain.
  • There’s no evidence it provides financial security to its suppliers, which can result in poor working conditions and wages.
  • There’s no evidence it ensures workers are paid living wages in its supply chain.
  • During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, it did not disclose adequate policies or safeguards to protect workers in its supply chain from the virus.
