“Let us help your brand react quickly by bringing everything you need to your fingertips. Gain exposure to all things fashion, learn what other players are doing, and optimize your offerings. We’re fast-forwarding towards a more sustainable, agile, and collaborative future.”
The marketplace strives to give sustainable fashion brands access to a network of over 40,000 buyers. It provides an easy and effective way of sharing brand stories, showcasing upcoming collections, and connecting with buyers globally.
Green Story and FashionUnited hope to push sustainability at the forefront of the fashion industry. The platform will offer relevant advice, information, and news promoting sustainable fashion.
Governments, world leaders, civil society, and the general public aren't the only ones who should take massive action to reduce pollution, waste, and carbon emissions.
Fashion companies can also use business as a force for good. They can work together to build a better future for everyone. Clothing brands and retailers have a major role to play in the transformation of the global fashion industry.
The industry is putting pressure on resources, polluting and degrading the natural environment and its ecosystems, and causing significant negative social impacts at local, regional, and global levels.
In our consumer-driven society, sustainability in the textile and apparel industry has become a priority due to demographic change and the scarcity of resources.
Together, let's build a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future. Businesses must come together and work hard for people, animals, and the planet.
Fashion buyers need to create the best sustainable collections for conscious consumers. They can now use the marketplace to find all information they require and search thousands of products from worldwide ethical apparel brands.
Fashion brands and buyers from all over the world can now register for the marketplace at fashionunited.com.
