Zara is one of the worst offenders in manufacturing harmful, toxic clothing according to a new report from Greenpeace (scary!) but the mega retailer has responded by announcing that use of hazardous chemicals will be eliminated by the year 2020.
“Greenpeace welcomes Zara's commitment to toxic-free fashion,' Greenpeace Toxics Campaigner John Deans told Fashionista. “This commitment from the worlds largest fashion retailer shows that fashion without pollution is possible. There is no reason that other brands can't meet the same standards.'

Doesn't it make you feel a little better about shopping at these retailers? I hope more brands will commit to going green.
Do you support Zara's move toward toxic-free fashion?
