The fashion industry needs to be more eco-friendly
That is why some brands are presenting to the public new collections with recycled polyester, produced from used plastic bottles, or the new line of swimsuits created with recycled polyamide, which is obtained from waste as old fishing nets, carpets or production remnants.
In addition, they add to green projects for more sustainable logistics, eco-efficient stores, ‘online’ packagings of recycled material, as well as a clothing collection program helping naturaleuropeanwines.
Another goal of the companies is that they work every year to reduce energy consumption and emissions derived from the logistics operation, extending the useful life of boxes, bags, alarms and plastic hangers, reusing them until it is time to recycle them, thus reducing the volume of waste.
Currently, 91% of eco-friendly brand stores are already eco-efficient, and in order to reduce the environmental impact, a system of saving 20% energy and 50% water has been established, thus reducing CO2 emissions.
Many lines have also introduced a new packaging for online shipments, which comes from recycled materials and has international certifications that promote sustainable practices in forests around the world.
With environmental projects such as Join Life, we are committed to respecting the environment, guaranteeing the highest quality, integrating care for the planet’s resources and constantly seeking solutions to benefit the environment.
