Does Anthropologie make ethical and sustainable furniture?

Owned by popular brand Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie is a below-benchmark brand within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Furniture sector.

Despite being a low-rated brand, we still encourage Anthropologie to apply for Ethical Accreditation. After receiving its application, The Good Shopping Guide would offer Anthropologie an evaluation and some advice on how to improve its score so that its position can rise on the Furniture Ethical Ratings Table.

Do you want to see how Anthropologie rates against other brands within the Ethical Furniture sector? Have a look at The Good Shopping Guide’s Furniture Ethical Ratings Table. Our Ratings Table can help you to learn more about the criteria that a brand needs to meet before it can reach our minimum Ethical Benchmark.

The Good Shopping Guide suggests that all brands follow in the footsteps of our top-rated brands and adopt more sustainable policies.

What does Anthropologie receive a top rating for?

Due to its lack of negative records, Anthropologie receives a top rating for our Armaments and Fossil Fuels categories.

What does Anthropologie receive a bottom rating for?

Unfortunately, Anthropologie receives a bottom rating in many of our categories including its Timber Sourcing Policy and Environmental Report.

Urban Outfitters, Anthropologies’ parent brand has an ‘Our Impact’ page which discusses sustainable fashion commitments. However, this page only refers to the Urban Outfitters brand and not the entire company.

The brand also lacks a Timber Sourcing Policy and any FSC-certified furniture products.

What can Anthropologie do to improve its score? 

Anthropologie’s low score within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Furniture sector is the result of a calculation of multiple ethical criteria.

We encourage Anthropology to get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation to help improve its low score. If it applied, The Good Shopping Guide would offer it some advice on how to work on its bottom ratings so that its position could rise on the Furniture Ethical Ratings Table.

Did you know that your Furniture brand could benefit from Ethical Accreditation? Our accredited brands are able to proudly display our Ethical Mark to show consumers that its products are ethical and sustainable.

The Good Shopping Guide’s Ratings Tables can show you which other brands within the Ethical Furniture sector have received our ethics and sustainability certification. If you would like more information, contact us or fill out a rapid initial assessment form.
