Care for fiber: at least 15% recycled cotton.
We use the Join Life label on clothing that is produced using technology and raw materials that help us to reduce the environmental impact of our products.
We work with monitoring programmes to ensure compliance with safety, health and quality standards for our products.
The Green to Wear 2.0 standard aims to minimise the environmental impact of textile manufacturing. To that end, we have developed Inditex’s The List programme, which helps guarantee both that production processes are clean and that our garments are safe and healthy.
Recycled cotton is obtained from cotton textile waste sorted by type and colour and later shredded and transformed into new cotton fibre.
The use of recycled cotton reduces the consumption of virgin raw materials. By transforming the cotton waste into a new recycled fibre, we avoid the cultivation of new cotton plantations.
Furthermore, its production process consumes less water and less energy and generates less waste, helping us to preserve the environment.
We only use recycled cotton certified by organisations which monitor the process from the source to the final product. At present, we work with:
Global Recycled Standard (GRS)
Recycled Content Standard (RCS)
We work alongside our suppliers, workers, unions and international bodies to develop a supply chain that respects and promotes human rights, contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Additionally, thanks to an ongoing collaboration with our suppliers, we have developed a tracking programme that allows us to determine where and how our products are being made.
