Holt Renfrew Has Decided to Focus on Eco-Production, Ditching the Fur and Leather
The luxury retailer from Toronto, Holt Renfrew, has recently decided to refuse from fur and leather. Now, the company aims to decrease its greenhouse gas emissions.
On Wednesday, a leading Canadian luxury goods retailer announced its involvement in sustainability. This includes reducing emissions and consumption, as well as finding more environmentally friendly products by ditching animal furs and exotic skins.
In addition, Holt is planning to switch to eco-friendly materials. For example, cotton and leather, along with plastic or paper packaging, wood, and palm oil will come from certified sustainable sources by the end of 2025. The company’s goal will be to remove barriers to the consumers, allowing them to shop with confidence and responsibility.
For instance, Holt has already closed some of its fur shops. It is now going to experiment with new materials and cooperate with new or already known brands that also follow sustainability. Holt also stopped selling plastic glitter contained in cosmetic products. What’s more, Holt added that 85 percent of the trash produced in his containers will be recycled rather than sent to landfills.
