Myakka ethical award

Fair trade furniture and home accessories business Myakka has revealed it has topped the ethical company list for a fourth consecutive year.

According to new research compiled by The Ethical Company Organisation (ECO), Myakka achieved the highest score and was based on the company’s emphasis on commitment to sourcing wood from sustainable sources and a clean human rights record, in addition to environmental impact and animal welfare.

The ECO’s research methodology is widely accepted as the benchmark for assessing businesses corporate social responsibility, with an Ethical Award given to those who are deemed to excel in their performance.

Myakka founder and director Georgie Hopkins said: “We have received an award every year since 2009, but we are exceptionally proud to have been awarded a perfect score for the fourth time.

“Ethical trading is at the heart of everything we do. Our underlying business model is very simple: to trade with people as we’d like to be dealt with ourselves, and to leave as small-an-environmental-footprint as possible.”

Myakka is also listed in the Good Shopping Guide, the world’s leading ethical shopping handbook compiled by the ECO.
