For much of 2019, the fashion industry has made continued attempts at making products, and the industry as a whole, more sustainable.
Following the news that France intends to ban the practice of companies burning unsold luxury goods and Prada's plans to use only recycled nylon by 2021, fast-fashion retailer, Zara, has shared with Vogue that by 2025, it will use only sustainable fabrics for its clothing.
According to Vogue, the company announced a series of initiatives aimed at making their brand more environmentally-friendly.
The announcements, which were shared on Tuesday, July 17, include a plan to no longer use fibers from endangered forests for fabric by 2023, to end its use of single-use plastics, and to commit to Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) by 2020.
As explained on the ZDHC website, the foundation works with members of the fashion industry, including Puma, Primark, and Target to aid fashion brands in pursuing and practicing a more sustainable means of production.
As reported by Business of Fashion on Instagram, some of Zara's work will begin as early as this year.

In 2019, the company plans to lessen energy use and water consumption in 100% of its stores, and ensure that at least 20% of its clothing can be included on its sustainable collection called Join Life.
By 2020, consumers will also be able to deposit unwanted clothing items at containers in Zara stores, and employees will be better educated about sustainability and the practice of sustainable fashions.
