Material Usage

PLAYFÜL uses a medium proportion of lower-impact materials, including upcycled materials. This choice helps reduce the environmental impact by limiting chemicals, water usage, and wastewater in the supply chain.

Packaging and Waste Reduction

However, there is currently no evidence that PLAYFÜL takes action to minimize its packaging, which is a significant driver of plastic waste. On a positive note, to minimize waste, the brand limits its production runs, which can help reduce excess inventory and waste.

Workers’ Rights and Labor Practices Rating

Production Practices

PLAYFÜL manufactures its products in-house with a small team, which can provide more direct oversight and potentially lead to better labor conditions. However, there is currently no evidence that the brand has a formal Code of Conduct in place to ensure adherence to labor standards.

Living Wages

Furthermore, there is no evidence that PLAYFÜL ensures that workers in its supply chain are paid living wages. This aspect is crucial in promoting fair labor practices and ensuring workers receive adequate compensation for their work.

Animal Welfare Rating

Material Usage

PLAYFÜL appears to use silk in its products, indicating a move towards more sustainable and animal-friendly materials. Additionally, the brand does not appear to use materials such as leather, wool, down, fur, angora, exotic animal skin, or exotic animal hair in its products.

Overall Rating

Based on all publicly available information reviewed, we rate PLAYFÜL “Good” overall. While the brand demonstrates a commitment to using lower-impact materials and shows promise in its approach to animal welfare, there are areas, such as packaging sustainability and labor practices, where there is room for improvement.
