SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Indigenous is pleased to announce that it’s earned Remake’s seal of approval, joining over 75 fashion brands who meet the company’s sustainability criteria.
Remake, a Bay Area-based non-profit, brings transparency to the world of fashion with it’s Remake Approved Brand Seal. The seal is the only customer facing sustainability seal of approval that holistically looks across key areas of impact like human rights, the climate, water, waste, traceability and transparency. It is designed with expert stakeholder input across foundations, brands and NGOs.

Brands who are run through the tool are given a score between 1-100 with 100 (a perfect score) meaning that they’re an industry luminary, providing a high level of transparency into their supply chain for consumers and offering insight into their social and environmental practices. Indigenous received a score of 70 while most passing brands average 43.
