The score is made up of 3 important areas including; people, the planet, and animals. The more transparent and ethical a brand is the higher their score is.

In a journey towards a more sustainable future at MySwimLook, we seek to share the brands that are rated well to support the vision to embrace sustainability and influence the creative force.
