Our People and Planet report was created as a means for transparency — to share our goals for the people and the planet — and report back in a year’s time. Check out how we did in 2020.
As a B Corp business, we believe that prioritizing people and the environment matter just as much as profits and happy customers.
Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. They are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment.
Recertification submitted in January 2022 with over 90 points. (The minimum to certify is 80.) We are currenly in the Verification Queue with Benefit Corporation Inc., waiting for an Analyst to verify our application.
We awarded three scholarships for the children of artisans in Mexico to attend university. We also took on an intern (for academic credit) studying fashion.
We have all the requisite information but did not create anything front-facing to increase our transparency with customers.
We continued our partnership with Soles for Souls and launched our 'ReBoot' program to take back loved, worn Poppy Barley shoes. We evaluated a couple re-sale market options but did not find a software platform currently availabe in Canada.
Our study determined Poppy Barley's total carbon footprint (Scope 1, 2 and 3) and did a Life-cycle Analysis of our 5 best-sellling products. We created annual reduction targets and offset our Scope 1 and 2 emissions by supporting the xxx project.
Our products for the year used A and B materials in 35% of our total materials. We also switched to water-based glues for 75% of our products.
This is (and we) are not perfect. However, with incremental steps, relentless focus, and accountability, we are changing the fashion industry.

Sizing Note: For the most accurate fit, measure around your body where you plan to wear the belt. Choose the closest belt size to that measurement.
The Accent Belt, The Polished Belt and The Complement Belt size measurements start from the beginning of the leather to the middle hole.
The Infinite Belt size measurements cover the entire length of the leather.
If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline,
wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your
midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.
If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline,
you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of
bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring
tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.
When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The
belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.
If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:
