Mango too joins Greenpeace Detox campaign

Women’s fashion brand Mango today committed to eliminate all releases of hazardous chemicals throughout its entire supply chain and products by 2020, following public pressure in response to Greenpeace’s Detox campaign.

“Mango and Zara have proven that “Moda sin toxicos” is this season’s hottest trend. It’s now time for other brands such as Levi’s, Gap and Victoria’s Secret to listen to their customers and create fashion without pollution,” said Marietta Harjono, Toxics Campaigner at Greenpeace International.

“Mango’s rapid elimination of PFCs  by 1 July 2013 sends a clear message to the textile industry that it is time to phase out this hazardous and hormone disrupting group of chemicals and replace it with safe alternatives,” said Harjono.

“Mango, together with Zara who committed to Detox last week, is beginning to take responsibility for its entire supply chain, which means providing local communities and customers with the information they need to ensure that local water supplies are not turned into public sewers for industry. The two Spanish brands will together require 120 suppliers around the world to disclose discharge data by the end of 2013,” said Harjono.

Mango’s commitment comes just over two weeks after Greenpeace launched its report “Toxic Threads: The Big Fashion Stitch-Up” in Beijing on November 20. Since then, 325,000 people have joined the campaign, with tens of thousands taking action on Facebook and Twitter, and over 700 people protesting and performing street theatre outside Zara shop fronts around the world.

Mango becomes the ninth brand to commit to eliminate releases of all hazardous chemicals throughout its supply chains and products since Greenpeace launched its Detox campaign in 2011.
