Barcelona, 14 February 2017 – MANGO is making a commitment towards sustainability. Last year the firm launched Take Action, a project which includes actions aimed at creating a business model based on sustainability criteria and more environmentally-friendly processes. The firm is currently developing a plan which will include future initiatives in this sphere.

The MANGO Committed capsule collection will be the star of the March campaign and will be available at mango.com and in selected stores worldwide from March.
MANGO Committed comprises 25 women’s garments and 20 men’s garments, with a minimal style, in which innovative forms and volumes predominate.The fabrics used in the collection are environmentally-friendly:organic and recycled cotton, recycled polyester and Tencel ®, and are dyed with environmentally-friendly inks in a palette of neutral colours.All garments in the collection have international certificates guaranteeing their sustainable origin and are manufactured in nearby factories in Portugal, Turkey and Morocco.
The campaign, starring the models Raquel Zimmermann and Mathias Lauridsen, was shot by Josh Olins with the collaboration of Aleksandra Woriniecka in the styling.The venue chosen was the iconic Maison Gaudet, a masterpiece of organic architecture by Antti Lovag, located in Tourrettes-sur-Loup.
