32 companies representing some 150 brands have signed up to the “Fashion Pact”. Details of the committee will be outlined to world leaders at the G7 summit in Biarritz on August 26. Signatories so far include high-street giants H&M and Inditex; luxury houses Chanel, Hermès, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo, Giorgio Armani, Burberry, Ralph Lauren, Capri Holdings and PVH; and sportswear labels Adidas and Nike. Although Stella McCartney has announced her commitment, LVMH, has chosen not to take part in the united effort.

The “Fashion Pact” details that the 32 companies will stop single-use plastics by the year 2030. The industry is responsible for 20 to 35% of the microplastic found in the ocean.
