Destination Dress is a brand that focuses on sustainability and environmental responsibility in its supply chain. It has been rated as “It’s a Start” in our “Planet” rating, which evaluates brands based on their environmental policies. The brand uses a high proportion of lower-impact materials, including organic cotton, which helps to limit the use of chemicals, water, and wastewater in its supply chain.
However, there is no evidence to suggest that Destination Dress minimizes textile waste in its supply chain. This is an area where many brands can make improvements, as textile waste is a significant contributor to environmental pollution. Similarly, there is no evidence to suggest that the brand takes action to minimize its packaging, which is a driver of plastic waste.
When it comes to workers’ rights, Destination Dress has been rated as “It’s a Start” in our “People” rating. While its products are made in-house by the owner, there is no evidence to suggest that the brand has a Code of Conduct in place. Additionally, there is no evidence to suggest that the brand ensures workers are paid living wages in its supply chain. Workers’ rights are central to our evaluation, and it is important for brands to prioritize fair and ethical treatment of their workers.
In terms of animal welfare, Destination Dress has been rated as “Good” in our “Animals” rating. Although the brand doesn’t appear to use animal-derived materials, it also doesn’t claim to be a vegan brand. We evaluate brands based on their animal welfare policies and their ability to trace animal-derived products in their supply chain.
Based on all the publicly available information we have reviewed, we rate Destination Dress as “Good” overall. While there are areas where the brand can improve, it shows a commitment to using lower-impact materials and has a positive rating in terms of animal welfare. However, there is room for improvement in terms of minimizing textile waste, reducing packaging waste, and ensuring workers are paid fair wages.
