Mango, a Spanish fashion retailer, has set new sustainability goals for its Committed line. The MANGO Committed collection has grown to become an integral part of the company, consisting solely of pieces with sustainable characteristics from various MANGO lines such as organic and recycled cotton, recycled polyester, and Tencel.
This season, 79 percent of MANGO's clothing is from the Committed set, with the company expecting that percentage to hit 100 percent by 2022. The use of environmentally friendly fibres and processes has helped to minimise environmental damage while also contributing to a circular economy.
Mango has also set a goal of using 100% organic cotton and 50% recycled polyester in its collections by 2025. By 2030, it expects all of its cellulose fibres, such as lyocell, viscose, and modal, to have a regulated origin and be traceable.
In a release, Mango’s CEO Toni Ruiz said that they've made the decision to keep working to make their business more sustainable. This is why they are taking massive steps forward with highly ambitious initiatives that will help them minimize environmental footprint and meet the rigorous sustainability goals we have set for ourselves.
As part of the commitment made when signing the Fashion Pact, MANGO will collaborate with Asociación Vellmar, formed in 1993 and led by Manu San Félix, beginning in April 2021. Manu is a biologist, scuba diver, National Geographic photographer, and adventurer whose mission is to bring nature closer to people, to fascinate and encourage them, and to help them understand the importance of oceans in our lives.
The Posidonia Lab, a groundbreaking marine conservation project that combines creativity, science, education, and raising awareness on the preservation of posidonia (neptune grass), an endangered plant species of the Mediterranean, is run by this non-profit organisation.
MANGO's initiative to replace plastic bags in its supply chain with paper bags is still ongoing. The company's aim is to gradually phase out all plastic bags used to transport goods in its supply chain, in partnership with its suppliers. MANGO will be able to stop using nearly 160 million plastic bags each year once this project is completed. MANGO will begin introducing this project with its Turkish suppliers in April, before eventually spreading to all other countries in the coming months.
