In this article, I’m only talking about Massimo Dutti (the pants), where environmental policies are quite green. For the other brands that I wear in this outfit, their environmental policies are to this day still not publicly clear, therefore I will refrain from making any comments/opinion.

The trousers in these pictures are from the Massimo Dutti collection of last summer. I found other green options for you, all from companies that try to be greener by putting in place action plans to reduce their emissions.

We live in a world where our small choices have way more impact than we think. The way you eat, the coffee you drink in the morning, the way you transport yourself, your choice of make-up and your choice of clothes – it’s sometimes hard to think about all these little details when you make a simple daily choice. I stumbled upon the environmental policy of Inditex (The Parent compagnie of Zara and Massimo Dutti to only named them) by complete coincidence, and was unexpectedly surprised to see their efforts in reducing their carbon footprints.

To ensure that they leave the smallest carbon footprint possible, Inditex (Massimo Dutti) continues to improve energy efficiency and the reduction of emissions at their logistic centres, stores and offices. To this day, 30% of their global energy consumption comes from clean sources. There is still a lot to do, but it’s a good start. They also fixed themselves a goal to achieve zero discharge of hazardous chemicals by 2020 in the manufacture of our products. See their full action plan here!

Slowly, the world of fashion may become greener? What do you think?

I also can’t Forget to mention Toms!
