When it comes to sustainability on the high street, Mango is certainly setting the standard. Mango’s sustainability commitment – which extends throughout its value chain – has the usage of responsible and ethically sourced fabrics at its very core. The Spanish retailer’s sustainability goals include using 100% sustainable cotton and 50% recycled polyester by 2025, and 100% cellulose fibers of controlled origin by 2030.
The high-street favorite is steadily inching towards its sustainability targets by using innovative manufacturing techniques such as laser and ozone that provide efficient solutions for washing and finishing each cloth. This season, Mango is honoring its sustainability commitment with a new denim collection, the finishing process of which will help save a whopping 30 million liters of water.
To that end, Beatriz Bayo, Mango’s Sustainability Director explains, “Thanks to innovation and adapting sustainable technologies and processes, we are creating collections that help us to reduce our footprint. Together with other teams and our garment and fabric suppliers, we are constantly seeking production alternatives and more sustainable materials.”
With the rugged fabric flooding the Spring/Summer 2021 runways, there is no doubt that denim will be one of the biggest trends come spring. In fact, the heavyweight cotton fabric is already witnessing increased demand. According to Lyst, the demand for denim pieces has seen a 23% rise since January, and that for denim overshirts, in particular, is up by 40%. Made room for some fresh denim pieces in your wardrobe?
