Zara have gone all Greenpeace on us, setting up a New Year’s resolution early by committing to eliminate releases of hazardous chemicals throughout its entire supply chain by 2020. Call it a ban of toxic fashion (Britney excluded) and the ultimate detox.
“Greenpeace welcomes Zara’s commitment to toxic-free fashion. If the world’s biggest fashion retailer can do it, there’s no excuse for other brands not to clean up their supply chains and make fashion without pollution,” said Martin Hojsik, Detox Campaign Coordinator at Greenpeace International.
“People around the world have spoken out against toxic fashion and it’s now time for other brands such as Esprit, Gap and Victoria’s Secret to listen to their customers and urgently Detox.”
A new video launched today further exposes those brands failing to take action on the issue, calling on people around the world to share the fashion industry’s toxic secret and convince more brands to Detox.
Spindle readers, take note and add green to your fashion pallet.
