Fashion brand MANGO strengthens its commitment towards sustainability by announcing the ‘MANGO Committed’ collection comprising garments manufactured with sustainable materials, reflecting the band’s commitment to continue working in an environmentally-friendly manner, adopting sustainable development criteria.
The MANGO Committed capsule collection will be one of the highlights of the March campaign and will be available at mango.com and in selected stores worldwide from this montyh. MANGO Committed comprises 25 women’s garments and 20 men’s garments, with a minimal style, in which innovative forms and volumes predominate.
The fabrics used in the collection are environmentally-friendly – organic and recycled cotton, recycled polyester and Tencel dyed with environmentally-friendly inks in a palette of neutral colours. All garments in the collection have international certificates guaranteeing their sustainable origin and are manufactured in nearby factories in Portugal, Turkey and Morocco.
Last year MANGO launched the ‘Take Action’ project that includes actions aimed at creating a business model based on sustainability criteria and more environmentally-friendly processes.
For example, all leather and fur garments in the MANGO collections are manufactured respecting animal rights; exotic, wild or endangered species are never used. Such hides always originate from animals destined for the human food chain. Further, all MANGO products meet the most stringent chemical health and safety standards.
MANGO participates in the ‘Greenpeace Detox Project’, which analyses water from wet processes in the supply chain, in order to move towards elimination of toxic substances. MANGO is also developing an internal tool to calculate the company’s water footprint and identify processes, garments and installations with the greatest water-saving potential, in order to reduce its water consumption.
In late 2015, MANGO launched a project to collect used clothing and footwear at selected stores, and one ton of garments have already been collected. This initiative allows 100% recycling of the clothing and footwear collected through the Koopera organisation. Every year, MANGO neutralises the CO₂ emissions associated with its offices and employee transport through carbon emission offset projects close to its areas of influence.
MANGO’s state-of-the-art logistics centre at Lliçà d’Amunt in Spain and its stores developed under the new ‘The Line’ concept launched in 2016 incorporate eco-efficiency criteria to reduce environmental impact and include optimised air conditioning and lighting systems (based on the latest LED technology), among other features.
