Mango’s new sustainable denim collection saves the environment and our wardrobes

Mango’s new ethical denim range, part of their SS21 collection, has achieved the impressive feat of being both environmentally and fashion conscious.

With sustainability at its core, the high street favourite has managed to save 30 million litres of water by using new, innovative manufacturing and eco-washing processes that don’t drastically deplete natural resources. For example, the brand uses laser techniques to evaporate dyes, rather than water and chemicals.

The brand is certainly striving towards a more sustainable fashion industry, and has pledged that, by the year 2025, 50 per cent of its polyester will be recycled and 100 per cent of its cotton will be sustainably sourced.

Beatriz Bayo, Mango’s sustainability director, said: ’Thanks to innovation and adapting sustainable technologies and processes, we are creating collections that help us to reduce our footprint.

‘Together with other teams and our garment and fabric suppliers, we are constantly seeking production alternatives and more sustainable materials’.

In terms of style points, the new denim range is heavily ‘90s-inspired – think lots of relaxed silhouettes and oversized cuts, as well as colour-blocking hues and patch detailing. Plus, it’s not just jeans in the collection either, there’s gilets, skirts, dresses, jumpsuits and jackets – even a pair of denim sandals – available in a wide range of colourways, from pastel pinks to ecru and, of course, classic denim blue.
