Burgeon Outdoor, a renowned brand in the world of sustainability, has received an environment rating of ‘not good enough’. Despite this, the brand does make efforts to incorporate eco-friendly materials in its products, with a medium proportion of organic cotton being used. However, there is no concrete evidence to show that the brand takes measures to minimize textile waste during the manufacturing process. Furthermore, the brand lacks evidence of implementing strategies to reduce packaging waste, which is a major concern in today’s world.

When it comes to the brand’s labor rating, Burgeon Outdoor is showing signs of progress. The final stage of production is carried out in the United States, a country where labor abuse poses a medium risk. While the brand does not have a documented Code of Conduct, it does have a formal statement in place that covers workers’ rights. However, there is a lack of evidence to suggest that payment of a living wage is ensured throughout its supply chain. The brand does make efforts to visit some of its suppliers, which showcases a commitment to transparency.

When it comes to the treatment of animals, Burgeon Outdoor has some room for improvement. The brand has received an animal rating of ‘it’s a start’. Although there is no evidence of an animal welfare policy in place, it is worth noting that the brand does not use leather, exotic animal hair, fur, down, angora, or exotic animal skin in its products. However, the use of wool is apparent, and this raises concerns over the treatment of sheep and the practices involved in obtaining wool.

In summary, Burgeon Outdoor has been rated as ‘It’s a start’ overall. While the brand has taken steps in the right direction, there is still much more work to be done to improve its sustainability practices. It is crucial for the brand to focus on minimizing textile waste, reducing packaging, and implementing measures to ensure the welfare of animals. Additionally, addressing labor issues, such as payment of a living wage and strengthening workers’ rights, is essential for moving towards a more sustainable future. With continued efforts and a strong commitment to sustainability, Burgeon Outdoor has the potential to become a leader in the industry.
