Zara, the international high street fashion store, has committed to making their clothes from 100% sustainable fabrics by 2025.
The popular clothes shop owned by Inditex is the first high street store to make such a commitment. They have also announced plans to make all their stores eco-efficient too.
Inditex, who also owns Pull&Bear and Massimo Dutti, has already been making moves to become more sustainable with installing clothes banks in stores to recycle fabrics as well as teaming up with organisation to develop better fabric recycling methods.
Executive Chairman and CEO of Inditex, Pablo Isla said, “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.”
