Lacoste unveils its first sustainable development report
LACOSTE has published its first sustainable development report which details another way of thinking about the textile industry. Aware of the impact of the fashion industry, Lacoste has set itself two distinct roadmaps: on the one hand, making equal opportunities a reality, and on the other hand, bringing the principles of the circular economy in the fashion sector. the Lacoste Sustainable Development Report highlights the company’s progress on these issues and sets out its ambitions for 2025. Lacoste has set itself three objectives by 2025 to ensure, at its scale, to fight against inequalities: involve 1,000 employees Lacoste in the Elevating Journey program which revolves around three axes: strengthening self-confidence, developing professional qualifications and helping people to set up their business; support 10,000 young people in their social and professional development; and, co-finance 50 projects improving the local living conditions of the populations involved in the Lacoste sector. At the end of 2020, Lacoste joined the “Make Fashion Circular” initiative of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. Lacoste has set itself four objectives by 2025: achieve the Lacoste standard of social and environmental excellence for 100% of cotton producers and industrial suppliers; reduce the environmental impact of each item of clothing sold by 15%, optimizing the use of natural resources and reducing pollution throughout the production chain; to double the lifespan of its entire range of polo shirts; and, offer a second life to 100% of textile waste and unsold goods. These ambitions were made possible by the traceability policy implemented by the company. Lacoste is among the first companies in the sector to have communicated in full transparency the complete list of its industrial partners, from its clothing workshops to spinning mills.

Personal Collection is the pioneer in the use of biodegradable packaging in PHL
THE PHILIPPINES are currently the third largest plastic polluter in the world, generating 2.7 tonnes of plastic dumped into the ocean. If this trend continues, there will be more plastic than fish in Philippine waters by 2050. This information prompted Personal Collection Direct Selling, Inc. (PCDSI) to launch its A Green Life is A Great Life movement. To do this, the company is pioneering the use of 100% biodegradable containers, using materials that are expected to decompose in landfills within around five to ten years. This is 100 times faster than the standard plastic bottle which could take up to 1,000 years to disintegrate. The new packaging will also help create biogas, a potential source of sustainable energy. By doing this, Personal Collection believes it can help save the oceans, one biodegradable bottle at a time. Further initiatives will be launched in the coming months as Personal Collection explores the use of organic and all-natural ingredients in its product lines. Beware of Personal Collection’s new biodegradable packaging design this month. Environmental awareness campaigns, online and offline, are expected in the coming months.
