Ethical brand ratings and accreditation since 2001

Steve’s attains Ethical Accreditation: A stylish leap towards sustainability

We are thrilled to announce that Steve’s, an Italian brand offering sustainable trainers, has achieved Ethical Accreditation. This marks a significant milestone for Steve’s, demonstrating its commitment to upholding ethical and sustainable practices through independent scrutiny and verification. At The Good Shopping Guide, we applaud businesses that go above and beyond in their efforts to make a positive impact on the Environment, Animals and People. As Steve’s clearly displays these qualities, the brand has truly earned its place among The Good Shopping Guide’s leading ethical companies and receives a top-ranking GSG Ethical Score of 100 in our Shoes & Trainers Ratings table.

Steve’s dedication to ethical business practices is evident in its innovative approach to fashion. One standout ethical feature of the Steve’s brand is the use of sustainable materials. For instance, the brand’s decision to incorporate apple skin leather into its designs showcases its eco-friendly approach to fashion that goes beyond aesthetics. By utilising discarded apple skins from the food industry, the brand not only reduces waste but also provides a cruelty-free alternative to traditional leather.

With the aim to address the issue of waste in the fashion industry, Steve’s also uses recycled and upcycled content to manufacture its trainers. By repurposing discarded materials, the brand creates high-quality, long-lasting trainers whilst contributing to the reduction of textile waste. This innovative choice reflects Steve’s dedication to pushing boundaries and setting new benchmarks for sustainability in the fashion world. It is a testament to Steve’s belief that style should not come at the expense of the environment.

Achieving Ethical Accreditation is not just about materials; it’s about a holistic approach to business that considers social, environmental and ethical factors. Steve’s demonstrates this commitment by ensuring fair labour practices, promoting inclusivity and actively engaging in environmentally responsible initiatives. The Ethical Accreditation serves as a seal of approval, assuring consumers, stockists and potential investors that Steve’s is dedicated to making a positive impact at every stage of its supply chain.

As consumers become increasingly conscientious about the choices they make, Steve’s stands out as a beacon of sustainability and ethics in the fashion landscape. The Good Shopping Guide proudly welcomes Steve’s into the fold of Ethical Accreditation members. We encourage fashion enthusiasts to support Steve’s in reshaping the industry for the better, which we hope will inspire other fashion companies to follow suit. Together, we can create a fashion industry that values both style and responsibility, proving that ethical choices and stylish trainers can go hand in hand.
