German retailer Bonprix was established in Hamburg, Germany, in 1986. Fast fashion is produced by the worldwide apparel retailer for men, women, and kids.
Clothing, accessories, shoes, swimwear, eyewear, and jewellery are all produced by Bonprix. The Bonprix brand, as well as others including About You, Limango, Frankonia, Heine, and Lascana, are all owned by the Otto Group.
About 4,000 people work at Bonprix, a global e-commerce and fashion company, in 30 countries. In addition, it offers furniture, home accessories, and decor.
Ambitious goals are being pursued by Bonprix to reduce its ecological impact. It takes into account how it will affect society, ecosystems, and the climate, with the long-term objective of being climate neutral.
Sustainability Techniques :
Bonprix employs a variety of strategies to safeguard biodiversity, lower resource usage (including water and electricity), prevent waste, and fight climate change.
In order to preserve the healthy operation of our planet, it aims to be better and more effective by taking a close look at every link in its value chain. The majority of its operations continue to harm the environment, nevertheless.
Organic materials like organic cotton and recycled materials like recycled polyester and regenerated nylon are seldom ever used by Bonprix.
The majority of the fabrics it utilises are either synthetic fibres made from petroleum, such as polyester, nylon, and acrylic, or natural fibres made without the necessary certifications, like normal cotton or linen.
Additionally, a tiny amount of regenerated cellulosic fabrics or semi-synthetic fibres like Tencel lyocell, modal, acetate, and viscose are used by Bonprix.
An environmentally friendly fibre called Tencel is created using wood pulp from legally managed forests. However, only a very small part of the materials utilised by Bonprix are sustainable and beneficial to the environment.
On the Otto group, the corporate website of Bonprix, a list of all its manufacturers and processing facilities is available. It tries to guarantee adherence to social norms and environmental preservation.
In accordance with how much information the company provides regarding its social and environmental policies, practises, and impacts, Bonprix received a 36% score on the 2022 Fashion Transparency Index.
Several East Asian nations, like Turkey, where daily abuses of labour and human rights laws occur, are where Bonprix sources its clothing.
The German clothes retailer demonstrates various labour certification criteria that guarantee favourable working conditions, worker health and safety, and other fundamental human rights.
Based on the rules established by the International Labor Organization, Bonprix has a code of conduct that is applicable to all of its suppliers and subcontractors (ILO).
By conducting unannounced third-party audits or informal site visits, Bonprix evaluates adherence to its code of conduct. It collaborates with NGOs and local and international unions to enhance the working conditions in its plants.
No exotic animal hair, skin, fur, or angora are used by Bonprix. But many of its apparel items are made from down feathers, leather, wool, and silk.
These materials made from animals are cruel and wrong. They produce garbage and greenhouse gases, which are harmful to the environment. There are sustainable alternatives.
