Top Fashion & Beauty brands from Newsweek’s Green Rankings 2010

Jump to Comments

We love our indie brands, but oftentimes shopping at chains can be unavoidable. Last month Newsweek released its Green Rankings 2010, ranking hundreds of the world’s most environmentally sound companies, and I went through and grabbed just the Fashion & Beauty companies from their Top 500 US Companies list — so that when we do find ourselves at the mall, we don’t have to check our conscientious-shopping-selves at the door.

Note that these rankings are based solely on environmental factors, not social – though a lot of environmentally responsible brands tend to get the social side right as well.

As ranked according to the Top 500 list:

10. Nike

40. Kohl’s

51. Wal-Mart

52. Avon Products

53. Estee Lauder (incl. Aveda, Origins, Clinique, M-A-C, Bobbi Brown, Bumble & bumble)

61. Target

63. J.C. Penney

71. Gap

91. Hanesbrands (incl. Champion, Playtex, Wonderbra)

100. Limited Brands (incl. Victoria’s Secret, Bath & Body Works, Henri Bendel)

108. Tiffany

113. Macy’s

118. Nordstrom

120. TJX (incl. T.J. Maxx, Marshalls)

232. Abercrombie & Fitch

245. Polo Ralph Lauren

316. Urban Outfitters

412. VF Corp (incl. Lee Jeans, VANS, Wrangler, Nautica, Jansport, The Northface, Reef, 7 For All Mankind)

436. Coach
