#RT: “Good for you, Zara”

"Good for you, Zara"
Nov 30th 2012, 08:55

After running a  strong campaign the last nine days, Greenpeace has finally made Zara  commit to go toxic-free. The commitment to produce without hazardous waste includes Zara and the seven other brands in the Inditex group: Pull & Bear, Massimo Dutti, Bershka, Stradivarius, Oysho, Zara Home and Uterqüe. H&M, Nike or Adidas had already commit to stop throwing toxic to the Asian rivers by 2020. Zara becomes the eighth brand to commit to eliminate releases of all hazardous chemicals throughout its supply chains and products since Greenpeace launched its Detox campaign in 2011. 

Zara's revolutionary model of production has changed fashion for ever. But the model is becoming obsolete. We can't continue to wear clothes that eventually can produce cancer. So its great news to hear this. Inditex have the money, the resources and the influence to drive others to go green. And to raise awareness about a subject that is matter of all of us.  How nice to end the week on a high note…Have a great weekend!

(Psst, next week Greenpeace will present a Detox Fashion Show in Madrid with Bimba Bosé and other celebrities. To assist, click here)


Después de la fuerte campaña de nueve días de Greenpeace, finalmente Zara se ha comprometido a empezar a producir sin tóxicos. El compromiso de producir sin desechos peligrosos es para Zara y las otras siete marcas del grupo Inditex: Pull & Bear, Massimo Dutti, Bershka, Stradivarius, Oysho, Zara Home y Uterqüe. H&M, Nike o Adidas ya han dicho que dejarán tirar residuos tóxicos en Asia para 2020. Así Zara se convierte en la octava marca en comprometerse a eliminar residuos peligrosos a través de su cadena de proveedores y productos desde que Greenpeace lanzara su Detox Campaign en 2011.

El modelo revolucionario de producción de Zara ha cambiado el mundo de la moda para siempre. Pero este modelo se ha transformado en obsoleto. No podemos seguir llevando prendas que eventualmente pueden causar cáncer. Así que es fantástico escuchar esta noticia. Inditex tiene los recursos, el dinero y la influencia para llevar a otros a producir y consumir más verde. Y para crear conciencia en un tema que nos toca muy de cerca a todos. El martes 4 Greenpeace organiza un Detox Fashion Show con la participación de Bimba Bosé entre otros, y te puedes inscribir aquí

Hablando de acabar la semana bien arriba! Buen finde!.

Inditex now makes 840 million garments a year and has around 5,900 stores in 85 countries, though that number is always changing because Inditex has in recent years opened more than a store a day, or about 500 stores a year. – The New York Times
