Mango plans to make garments a lot more sustainable in the next five years. The company is hoping to transform the way it produces clothes by increasing the use of recycled polyester in its garments by 50 per cent and only using 100 per cent organic cotton from controlled sources by 2025. The brand has already signed up for the Better Cotton Initiative to support cultivation of sustainable cotton worldwide, the brand is also hoping that by 2030, 100 per cent of its cellulose fibers will be from controlled sources.
Mango opened in 1984. Consumption of water, energy and chemicals has been reduced through the introduction of Jeanologia’s Ecowash technology and through the incorporation of the Better Cotton Initiative in garments, which encourages the use of sustainable cotton farming techniques, while additionally guaranteeing workers’ health and safety. Almost 38 per cent of Mango’s jeans collection has sustainable characteristics and this figure is expected to increase to over 50 per cent for the coming season. The Spanish fashion brand with digital transformation and data wants to deliver meaningful changes. Mango has a new logistics center in Spain. Approximately 600 people work six days a week at the highly automated facility, where around 400 operations are machine-driven, to process items for store deliveries.
