MANGO EMPLOYEES TALK ABOUT THEIR COMMITMENT TO MORE SUSTAINABLE FASHION IN THE COMMITTED TO THE FUTURE CAMPAIGN
The brand is opening up new horizons and this time round has put the spotlight on its employees to launch its new sustainability campaign. A campaign in which the commitment is created from within, with the company’s own employees explaining how, in their work roles, they are working towards a more sustainable fashion future.
In this way, Mango is giving visibility to specific stories of their employees and their daily routines. The stars of the campaign include Jordina and Marta, Outerwear Designer and Buyer at Mango. They have driven change by replacing the traditional filling of anoraks with recycled polyester fibres similar to raw cotton sourced from recycled plastic bottles. For his part, David, Head Merchandiser at Mango Man, tells us how it was possible for all the men's tailored coats to be produced using recycled wool fibres from sweaters. On the other hand, María, a Knitwear Buyer, explains to us that the materials used to make knitwear garments come from cellulose fibres of traceable and controlled origin. Finally, Sarah, a Designer for the Kids and Teen lines, presents the cut & sewn capsule for children and teenagers created from textile remnants.
"This year we have made significant progress towards the goals established in Mango’s sustainability strategy. We are very happy with the route we are taking in collaboration with many other teams in the company. Their direct involvement and effort are making the results very positive and focused on the transformative change demanded by the industry and our responsibility as a company”, Beatriz Bayo, Mango’s CSR Director, explains.
Mango continues to advance in sustainability, one of its strategic pillars. The company continues in its desire to achieve the major goal of a more ethical and sustainable fashion industry, through initiatives that reduce its impact on the environment. Key advances this year include the elimination of plastic, which is being replaced with paper and other materials with a lower environmental impact, as well as the progress made in the traceability and transparency of the value chain, with the publication of the level 2 factories, in addition to the level 1 factories that were published in 2020.
The Mango Committed collection, which includes all the garments from the different Mango lines with sustainable characteristics, has evolved to become a permanent collection of the firm. 75% of Mango garments now form part of the Committed collection and the company expects the figure to reach 100% by 2022. The use of sustainable fibres and processes makes it possible to reduce its impact on the environment and make fashion more sustainable in the future.
