M&S tops list of UK's most ethical retailers

Marks & Spencer has been named the UK’s most ethical clothing retailer in a new survey carried out by Ethical Consumer magazine.

The survey, which was published to tie in with the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory disaster in which more than 1,100 people died, ranked more than 100 of the UK’s retailers.

M&S came top with 10.5 out of 20 marks available, followed by H&M and Zara, which both scored 9.5. George at Asda came the lowest, followed by Bonmarche and Sainsbury’s Tu.

People Tree, Living Crafts and THTC were named as the most ethical clothing brands in the UK, while Pants to Poverty, Peau Ethique and Who Made Your Pants? were named as the most ethical brands of underwear.

Report author Bryony Moore said: “Well-made clothing from well-paid and protected workers is available now as a real alternative to the fast-fashion, high-exploitation model that’s causing such suffering and injustice around the world today.”
