Not all fast-fashion labels are created equal, according to a new report by Ethical Consumer. The U.K. magazine tapped a variety of publicly available data, including company sustainability reports, to rate nearly 60 high-street and online brands on their social and environmental engagement in five primary categories: animals, environment, people, politics, and product sustainability. Leading the pack? British department store Marks & Spencer, which scored 10.5 out of a possible 20, followed by apparel juggernauts H&M and Zara with 9.5 each. George, the in-house clothing label by Walmart-owned Asda, ranked at the bottom with a piddly 0.5.
