BoBo GloBal, a brand that is making efforts towards sustainability, receives a rating of “It’s a Start” in our “Planet” category. We evaluate brands based on their environmental policies, considering factors such as carbon emissions, wastewater, business models, and product circularity. BoBo GloBal has shown progress by using some lower-impact materials, including upcycled materials. However, there is currently no evidence to suggest that the brand is taking meaningful action to reduce water usage. On a positive note, the brand manufactures its products by hand, which helps reduce its climate impact. Nevertheless, there is room for improvement as the brand does not demonstrate any efforts to minimize packaging, which contributes to plastic waste.
In our “People” category, we assess brands’ policies and practices related to workers’ rights. BoBo GloBal receives a rating of “It’s a Start” in this category. The brand deserves praise for partnering with global artisans and independent makers. Additionally, BoBo GloBal traces its supply chain until the final production stage. However, it is unclear whether the brand ensures that workers are paid living wages throughout its supply chain. This is an area where the brand can work towards improvement in order to better protect and support workers.
Turning to our “Animals” category, we focus on brands’ animal welfare policies and their ability to trace animal-derived products. BoBo GloBal receives a rating of “Good” in this category. The brand appears to use exotic animal hair and silk in some of its products. However, it is worth noting that BoBo GloBal uses recycled leather in all of its leather products. Furthermore, the brand does not seem to use wool, down, fur, angora, or exotic animal skin. This commitment to avoiding certain materials demonstrates the brand’s dedication to animal welfare.
Based on our comprehensive review of all publicly available information, we give BoBo GloBal an overall rating of “Good.” While the brand shows positive efforts in terms of sustainability, there is still room for improvement, particularly in areas such as reducing water usage, minimizing packaging waste, and ensuring workers are paid living wages. Nonetheless, BoBo GloBal serves as a positive example among brands striving to make a positive impact on the planet, people, and animals.
