Our blog aims to promote sustainability and highlight brands that are making a positive impact on the environment. In this article, we will be discussing the brand “In The Soulshine” and evaluating its sustainability practices based on our rating system.
When it comes to the environmental impact of “In The Soulshine,” we rate the brand as “It’s a Start.” While the brand does use a medium proportion of lower-impact materials, such as organic cotton, there is no evidence to suggest that it is actively taking further action to reduce its energy use or greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, the brand should be commended for its efforts in avoiding plastic packaging.
However, there is a lack of evidence regarding the brand’s efforts to minimize textile waste in its supply chain. Textile waste is a significant issue in the fashion industry, and brands that actively work to reduce waste should be celebrated. “In The Soulshine” has room for improvement in this area.
When assessing brands’ policies and practices regarding workers’ rights, we rate “In The Soulshine” as “It’s a Start.” The brand traces most of its supply chain, which is a positive step towards ensuring transparency and accountability. However, it sources its final stage of production from countries with extreme risk of labour abuse.
While “In The Soulshine” does not have a formal code of conduct, it does have a formal statement that covers workers’ rights. The brand could benefit from implementing a comprehensive code of conduct to further protect workers’ rights. Additionally, it is unclear whether the brand ensures that workers in its supply chain are paid living wages. This is an important aspect of workers’ rights that should be addressed.
When it comes to animal welfare, “In The Soulshine” receives a rating of “Great.” The brand proudly states that its entire product range is vegan, which means that no animal-derived products are used. This commitment to not using animal-derived materials is commendable and aligns with our focus on animal welfare.
We also consider how well brands trace their animal-derived products, and while there is no specific information available, we can infer that “In The Soulshine” is doing well in this aspect since their entire range is vegan.
Based on all the information we have gathered and assessed, we rate “In The Soulshine” as “Good” overall. The brand shows potential and has made positive strides in certain areas such as using lower-impact materials and ensuring animal welfare.
However, there are areas where the brand can improve, such as actively working towards reducing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, minimizing textile waste, implementing a comprehensive code of conduct for workers’ rights, and ensuring that workers in the supply chain are paid living wages.
By taking further steps to address these areas of improvement, “In The Soulshine” has the opportunity to become a leading brand in sustainability and make an even greater positive impact on the environment, workers’ rights, and animal welfare.
