The company aims to phase out all plastic bags used to distribute products at all levels of the supply chain, in cooperation with its suppliers. This way, Mango will stop using about 160 million plastic bags annually.
The bags that will be used are made of tissue paper, which is a material made from natural pulp from renewable sources. This paper comes from sustainably managed forests, as the techniques used for logging meet the requirements of FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) international standards. In this way, it also contributes to the development of the circular economy, as paper products can be recycled four to six times.
The project will initially be launched in the field of domestic production of folded clothes, after the success of the three pilot tests conducted by the company in Morocco, China, and Turkey. Mango expects this new project to be possible on all her clothes by the end of 2021.
