REER3: A Sustainable Start
When it comes to sustainability, it is important for brands to take responsibility for their environmental impact and prioritize the well-being of workers and animals. In the case of REER3, our “Planet” rating evaluates the brand based on its environmental policies in the supply chain. While the brand has made efforts to incorporate lower-impact materials, such as organic cotton, there is no evidence of further action to reduce energy use or greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, there is room for improvement in minimizing textile waste in the supply chain.
Putting People First
At our “People” rating, we assess brands’ policies and practices regarding workers’ rights. REER3 receives an “It’s a Start” rating in this category. The brand’s final production stage is monitored by the Fair Wear Foundation, which ensures that workers’ rights are upheld. However, there is no evidence of a comprehensive Code of Conduct, and it is unclear whether workers in the supply chain receive living wages. To further improve its rating, REER3 needs to prioritize these important aspects of workers’ rights.
Animal Welfare Matters
When considering our “Animals” rating, we focus on brands’ animal welfare policies and their ability to trace animal-derived products. REER3 receives a “Great” rating in this category, as it has been listed by PETA as vegan. This means that the brand does not use any animal-derived materials in its products. This is a positive step towards promoting cruelty-free fashion.
Overall Assessment: Good
Based on all the publicly available information we have reviewed, we rate REER3 as “Good” overall. The brand has demonstrated efforts to incorporate lower-impact materials and has been recognized for its animal welfare practices. However, there is room for improvement in terms of reducing energy use, minimizing textile waste, and ensuring living wages for workers in the supply chain. By taking further action in these areas, REER3 can continue to enhance its sustainability efforts and achieve an even higher rating.
When it comes to sustainability, brands play a crucial role in shaping the fashion industry’s future. By prioritizing environmental responsibility, workers’ rights, and animal welfare, brands like REER3 can pave the way for a more sustainable and ethical fashion industry.
