Sustainability Ratings for PRISTINE

Planet

Our “Planet” rating evaluates brands based on the environmental policies in their supply chains, from carbon emissions and wastewater to business models and product circularity. PRISTINE has been rated as “Great” in this category. Factors influencing its score include the use of a medium proportion of lower-impact materials, such as organic cotton. The brand also makes use of low-impact materials that help limit the chemicals, water, and wastewater in its supply chain. To minimize waste, PRISTINE reuses all of its textile offcuts. Additionally, the brand uses some recycled packaging and manufactures its products closer to home to reduce the climate impact of long-distance shipping.

People

When it comes to workers’ rights, our “People” rating assesses brands’ policies and practices on everything from child labor to living wages and gender equality. PRISTINE has been rated as “It’s a Start” in this category. Factors influencing its score include the fact that its final production stage happens in Japan, a medium-risk country for labor abuse. PRISTINE also traces most of its supply chain, although there is no evidence that it has a formal Code of Conduct. Furthermore, there is no evidence to suggest that PRISTINE ensures workers are paid living wages in its supply chain.

Animals

Our “Animals” rating focuses on brands’ animal welfare policies and how well they trace their animal-derived products. PRISTINE has been rated as “It’s a Start” in this category. The brand has published a general statement about minimizing animal suffering, but it does not have a formal animal welfare policy. PRISTINE appears to use exotic animal hair and silk in some of its products. While PRISTINE has a policy to source wool from non-mulesed sheep, there is no evidence provided to verify this claim. Additionally, the brand does not appear to use leather, down, fur, angora, or exotic animal skin.

Overall Rating

Based on all publicly available information we’ve reviewed, we rate PRISTINE as “Good” overall. The brand has demonstrated a commitment to environmental sustainability, although there is room for improvement in terms of workers’ rights and animal welfare policies. PRISTINE’s focus on using low-impact materials and minimizing waste is commendable, and we hope to see continued progress in all areas of sustainability in the future.
