Areas For Development:

We love the commitment Oliver Co has made to sustainability and its B Corp status.  For us, we’d like to see more emphasis on content that shines the light on the people:

  • An ethics page on their website that details what running an ethical company means to them is recommended.
  • Evidence of fair, living wages paid to the people who make the wallets, purses and pouches. How much are workers paid?
  • We’d like to see more diversity in their marketing and photography materials.
  • We would also like to see care and repair instructions for their accessories, and where to recycle them at their end of life.

Thoughts from Sustainable Stylist Roberta Lee

The slick designs feel very luxe and are perfect for gifting to someone for a special occasion. I love the brand’s commitment to become fully circular – even if it’s not yet possible, it’s great to see brands exploring what it will take to get there and trying their best.
