The Spanish fashion chain is taking big steps to reduce its environmental impact.

The owner of the fashion and homewares brand has recently announced their entire collections in both clothing and home will be made from 100 per cent sustainable fashion by 2025. 

Announced at the annual shareholders meeting on Tuesday 16th July, the decision has made Zara the first international high street store to make such a commitment. 

By putting this plan into action, it's estimated that 80 per cent of the energy consumed by Zara will be from renewable sources, while it's facilites will produce zero landfill waste.

This change within the fashion industry will make an enormous impact to the entire world, as the apparel industry currently accounts for 10 per cent of global carbon emissions.

While Zara is paving the way for sustainable fashion, it seems like it's only a matter of time before other bands follow suit.

Zara is a client of apparel company, Inditex which has announced that while Zara will be the first brand to make the change, its other clients such as Massimo Dutti and Pull&Bear will soon be following the direction. 

The group has recently been named the most sustainable retailer, and partners with charities such as the Red Cross on redistributing excess and used stock to people in need. Inditex are also in progress to determine the most efficien and eco-friendly way to recycle the stock, to make the process as seamless as possible.
