Second hand luxury that helps the environment: Gucci

Second hand luxury that helps the environment: Gucci

We all know Gucci, the brand founded in Florence by Guccio Gucci in 1921 that soon became a world-wide know fashion brand, an important icon of the Dolce Vita and, in the 2010s, a “geek-chic brand”. Their production ranges from ready-to-wear and handbags to footwear, accessories, jewellery and fragrances. What not everyone knows is that Gucci is also an innovative and progressive brand with vanguard views on the theme of sustainability. Gucci’s 10 years sustainability plan has, as its bottom line, the aim of reducing the environmental impact of their operations, especially in regards of water’s waste, CO2 emissions, waste production and the release of hazardous chemicals in our dear environment. Despite the environmentalist efforts of the Tuscan brand, a more sustainable production doesn’t fully answer the needs of our planet. What is really needed is slowing down production as much as possible. Second hand luxury is the best response to this demand.

On Fancy Lux you will be able to shop the best pre-loved Gucci pieces while safeguarding our beloved planet earth.

Why is pre-loved Gucci the best choice for the environment?

The environment is constantly threatened by pollution and lately we are seeing more and more the long lasting effects of it: some of the most distinct features of our Mother Earth are changing permanently. It is of fundamental importance to put a stop to this devastating environmental change caused by air and water pollution. Fashion industry is one of the top polluting industries in the world. Every year the global fashion industry produces around 1.2 billion tonnes of carbon emissions, while 65 million tons of plastic are used in fashion production and 79 billion cubic meters of water are used by the textile and clothing industry on average. Moreover, 10.5 million tons of clothing ends up in landfills every year. Pre-owned luxury is the most efficient way to extend the life cycle of every single piece and drastically reduce the carbon dioxide emission and the water waste.
