Last week, eyewear brand Ace & Tate revealed that it had made some poor decisions in the past. Those bad moves surfaced while the Amsterdam-based company was preparing to be certified as a B Corporation, and ranged from not fully realizing their responsibility towards people working in their supply chains, to mixing in bamboo fibers with plastic in a misguided attempt to create eco-friendlier cases.
