M&S unveils ‘world’s most sustainable suit’

Written by Haydn Davis

LONDON - Marks & Spencer has unveiled what it is calling the ‘world’s most sustainable suit’ with everything from the buttons to the lining sourced to produce ‘one of the greenest garments ever made’.

The different elements of the suit include organic wool which is fully traceable back to the farms from where it is produced, a lining made from recycled plastic bottles, canvas (used inside the main body of the suit) made from recycled polyester and reclaimed buttons. It also contains pockets and waistband made from reclaimed fabric and labels made from recycled polyester.
