Fat Face has revealed a list of sustainability targets for 2025 in a bid to keep up to pace with consumer demands.

From this month, the lifestyle retailer will sustainably source its cotton, viscose and linen, and will recycle 100 per cent of the polyester it uses.

By 2025, Fat Face will prioritise its buying decisions to suppliers who disclose their first-tier product supply chain.

The retailer also revealed it has reduced its carbon footprint by eight per cent since 2018.

It has switched its product bags to recycled plastic, and online delivery bags are now made of recycled paper.

It also increased its waste recycling rate by 45 per cent in the last year.

By 2025, Fat Face aims to not send any of its waste to landfill, and eliminate single-use plastic across the business.

Meanwhile, 100 per cent of the energy used to power its head office and UK stores will come from renewable sources.
