    Feature: Our commitment to reducing single-use plastic

    By minimising waste and reducing its environmental footprint, UNIQLO is working to build a truly sustainable business.

    every year 8 million tons  about 150 million  tons

    The environmental impact of plastic is growing worldwide. It is estimated that every year, 8 million tons of new plastic enters our seas, adding to the estimated 150 million tons that are already in our marine environments.

    Reducing single-use plastic

    UNIQLO has decided to reduce single-use plastic in its stores, beginning September 2019 by phasing out plastic shopping bags, and continuing by reducing the amount of single-use plastic in its product packaging.

    Sustainability Measure ①

    From September 2019, UNIQLO began switching to environmentally-friendly shopping bags, made from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper or recycled paper.

    FSC

    FSC forest management certification confirms that the forest from which materials are sourced is being managed in a way that preserves biological diversity and benefits the lives of local people and workers, while ensuring it sustains economic viability.

    Every year 7,800tons

    Fast Retailing Group committed to reducing the amount of single-use plastic handed to customers at its stores worldwide, such as shopping bags and product packaging, by 85%, or around 7,800 tons annually. We are pleased to announce that this figure was achieved by the end of 2020.

    UNIQLO is considering eliminating the use of single use plastic in its hangers, size seals and packing material used in logistics. Where the properties of plastic are still necessary, UNIQLO will consider switching to eco-friendly substitutes.
