Primark Pledges To Make All Its Clothing Sustainable And ‘affordable For All’

Primark has committed to making all of its clothes using recycled or sustainably-sourced material by 2030, without a hefty price tag.

The fast-fashion retailer has said it will strengthen the durability of its items so they last longer and design clothes so they can be recylced.

Sustainable clothes at low prices

The pledge comes as part of the retailer’s new sustainability strategy, which pledged to halve its carbon emissions and pursue a living wage for its workers throughout the supply chain.

Some 25 per cent of Primark’s clothes are currently from recycled or sustainably sourced materials, but it is aiming to make all t-shirts with sustainably sourced cotton over the next year.
