Vestiaire Collective bans H&M, Zara,Gap in Fight against fashion waste.

Luxury resale company Vestiaire Collective has announced a slew of fast fashion companies that are now banned on the platform. Today 30 brands including Abercrombie & Fitch, Gap, H&M, Mango, Uniqlo, Urban Outfitters, and Zara were listed. Vestiaire Collective makes the announcement in hopes of creating a more circular economy. Additionally, the second-hand luxury site is hopeful that with this business move the fashion industry’s overconsumption and textile waste issues will be further addressed. Dounia Wone Vestiaire Collective’s chief impact officer shared that the decision to ban fast fashion was made to support the company’s “long-time work to promote alternatives to the dominant model of fashion,” reports Fashionista. Banning more fast fashion from Vestiaire Collective’s website will spark debate,” the company stated. “However with the climate crisis accelerating and 92 million pounds of textile waste thrown away every year, it is a necessary step to reduce fashion’s environmental waste.”

    That's interesting, would love to know why these brands and not other, I understand they are bad, but it feels like all brands are part of the fast fashion issue these days 🤔

          It's great to see Vestiaire Collective taking a stand against fashion waste by banning fast fashion brands like H&M, Zara, and Gap. These brands are known for their unsustainable practices and contribute to the growing problem of textile waste.

              This is a significant step taken by the company to promote sustainability and encourage a shift towards a more ethical and environmentally friendly fashion industry. By excluding these brands from their platform, Vestiaire Collective aims to raise awareness about the negative impact of fast fashion and promote the importance of buying and selling pre-owned, high-quality clothing instead. This ban emphasizes the need for consumers to be conscious of their fashion choices and support brands that prioritize sustainability and responsible production.
