M&S launches world's most sustainable suit 2012-07-03 - No Comments

The retailer Marks and Spencer presented its first suit made from “the most sustainable materials possible”. This is one of the results of sustainable clothes promoted by M&S Plan A. The suit is made by recycled polyester in the canvas and labels, reclaimed buttons and fabric and organic wool. The retailer already produced 500 suits which will be launched online. You will find it in stores next September in the Savile Row Inspired collection. Mark Sumner, the M&S Plan A sustainable raw material expert, affirmed that this new garment is a huge step forward in the fashion industry.


Marks and Spencer’s Plan A was launched in 2007, setting out 100 commitments to achieve in 5 years. The retailer extended it to 2015 with 180 commitments with the aim to become “the world’s most sustainable retailer” through the cooperation between customers and M&S suppliers in order to combat climate change, reduce waste, use sustainable raw materials, trade ethically and promote healthier lifestyle.
