Ohoy Swim: A Sustainable Brand Rating

Our “Planet” rating evaluates brands based on their environmental policies in their supply chains, covering areas like carbon emissions and wastewater management. Ohoy Swim has been rated as “Good” in this category for several reasons. Firstly, the brand uses a medium proportion of lower-impact materials, including recycled materials, which helps reduce the environmental impact of its products. Additionally, Ohoy Swim employs low-impact materials that limit the use of chemicals, water, and wastewater in its supply chain. Moreover, the brand manufactures its products closer to home, reducing the climate impact of long-distance shipping.

However, there’s room for improvement as there is no evidence that Ohoy Swim is taking actions to minimize microplastic impacts, an area that the brand could focus on to further improve its environmental sustainability.

“People” Rating: Labor Practices

When it comes to workers’ rights, which are crucial to our “People” rating, Ohoy Swim has been rated as “Not Good Enough.” Most of the brand’s final production stage occurs in Portugal, which is considered a medium-risk country for labor abuse. Additionally, Ohoy Swim lacks evidence of having a Code of Conduct or auditing its suppliers. There is also no evidence to suggest that the brand ensures workers are paid living wages in its supply chain.

Improving labor practices is an essential area for Ohoy Swim to focus on in order to enhance its overall sustainability and social responsibility efforts.

“Animals” Rating: Animal Welfare

Our “Animals” rating focuses on brands’ animal welfare policies and how well they trace their animal-derived products. Since Ohoy Swim’s products are generally free of animal-derived materials, the brand has not received a rating in this category. However, it’s important for Ohoy Swim to continue to uphold high standards in animal welfare policies in case they introduce any animal-derived materials in the future.

Overall, Ohoy Swim has been rated as “It’s a Start” based on its combined environment and labor scores. While the brand has made positive strides in using sustainable materials and manufacturing processes, there is still work to be done in improving labor practices and ensuring full transparency across its supply chain.

By addressing the areas of improvement highlighted in our ratings, Ohoy Swim can continue to progress towards becoming a more sustainable and socially responsible brand in the future.
