Zara has announced that their clothes will be made from 100% sustainable fabrics before 2025.
Inditex said its other brands, including Zara Home, Massimo Dutti and Pull&Bear, will also follow suit.
Pablo Isla, the chief executive of Inditex spoke about plans for sustainable development in the near future. Thus, Zara brand plans to fully switch to eco-friendly fabrics by 2025 - cotton and linen in the collections will be organic, and polyester - recycled.
By 2025, 80% of the energy consumed in Zara’s facilities will be from renewable sources and will produce zero landfill waste, while by 2023, it promised, the viscose used will also be 100% sustainable, The Guardian reported referring to the company.
“We need to be a force for change, not only in the company but in the whole sector. We are the ones establishing these targets: the strength and impulse for change is coming from the commercial team, the people who are working with our suppliers, the people working with fabrics. It is something that’s happening inside our company,” Pablo Isla reported.
Zara has a Join Life line, which is made from eco-friendly materials. It makes up 20% of the entire brand range; next year it is planned to increase its share to 25%.
