La Bottega di Brunella: A Review on Sustainability
La Bottega di Brunella is a brand that has been evaluated based on its environmental policies, workers’ rights, and animal welfare practices. In terms of its environmental impact, the brand is rated “Not Good Enough”. While it does use a medium proportion of lower-impact materials, such as linen, there is no evidence that it minimizes textile waste in its supply chain. Additionally, it does not take meaningful action to reduce or eliminate hazardous chemicals in manufacturing. The brand also lacks efforts in minimizing its packaging, which contributes to plastic waste.
On the other hand, when it comes to workers’ rights, La Bottega di Brunella is rated “It’s a Start”. The final production stage takes place in Italy, which is considered a medium risk country for labor abuse. While the brand does visit its suppliers regularly, there is no evidence of having a Code of Conduct. Furthermore, there is no evidence of ensuring that workers are paid living wages in its supply chain.
When examining the brand’s animal welfare policies and practices, La Bottega di Brunella is rated “Good”. It appears that the brand uses pearl, but does not use materials such as leather, wool, down, fur, angora, exotic animal skin, or exotic animal hair. This shows a positive stance towards animal welfare.
Based on a thorough review of publicly available information, La Bottega di Brunella is rated “It’s a Start” overall. While the brand shows potential in certain areas, there is room for improvement in terms of its environmental impact, workers’ rights, and ensuring fair wages in its supply chain. By addressing these areas, the brand has the opportunity to enhance its sustainability practices and rating.
