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 Blue Of A Kind “Good”. These are a few issues influencing its score:
- It uses a high proportion of lower-impact materials including recycled materials.
- It uses low impact materials that help limit the chemicals, water, and wastewater in its supply chain.
- There’s no evidence it takes action to minimise its packaging, which is a driver of plastic waste.
- It manufactures its products closer to home to reduce the climate impact of long-distance shipping.
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 Blue Of A Kind “It’s a Start”. These are a few issues influencing its score:
- Its final production stage happens in Italy, a medium risk country for labour abuse.
- It traces most of its supply chain.
- There’s no evidence it has a Code of Conduct.
- There’s no evidence 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 Blue Of A Kind “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 Blue Of A Kind “Good” overall.
