HANDLING SUSTAINABLE STOCK CLOTHING

Textiles, Shoes and Accessories

The production of textiles and footwear has devastating consequences for the environment. As a matter of fact, the textile and leather productions emit approximately 89 million metric tons of CO₂ annually (IEA data). In addition to that, there are figures on footwear production which reach approximately 700 million metric tons annually (Quantis 2018). Apart from the CO₂ emissions, it is also very important to keep in mind the massive consumption of electricity and water!

As a result of globalization, the fashion industry has been extremely focused on manufacturing overproduction and profit maximization. This situation originated a “leftovers” trend, where alarmingly large quantities of shoes and clothing are being dumped, to make room for the new collections.

In response to this waste and to foster the circular economy, F&P Stock Solution aids in contributing to the environment and offers an alternative way. To give shoes and cloth a second life cycle – a second opportunity through a sustainable stock clothing approach!

In this way, the suppliers do not have to destroy their clothing leftovers and there will be for the customers to buy goods that have to be newly manufactured.

Hence, our wholesale and stock clothing business model makes a significant contribution to reducing greenhouse gases and conserving resources. Furthermore, it ensures greater sustainability in the supply chains of our business partners!

Together with F&P for a more
sustainable supply chain

F&P means to ensure that the value chain of both our suppliers and our B2B customers becomes more sustainable whilst supporting the fashion industry. By selling to us, all suppliers can avoid destroying their unsold apparel products.

At the same time, when purchasing from us a positive impact is generated. Every purchase realized by the B2B customers sustains and nourishes the decrease of the CO₂ footprint – no new goods have to be produced.

How does F&P contribute?

Since 2013, F&P’s main mission has been to engage in the purchase and sale of surplus goods and returns. However, profit maximization is not the only goal, since 2018 the company is ECG certified and has undergone successfully the Economy for the Common Good audit.

By reselling leftover fashion stocks – shoes, textiles and accessories – it is endorsed to decimate the destruction of unsold goods. On the other hand, it encourages companies to reduce the need to produce new ones. In this way, everybody wins – suppliers and customers benefit from the sustainable stock clothing solution approach.

The impact of considering sustainable methods in the textile industry is significant. Just only, the production and delivery of a cotton T-shirt have as a result an average of around 7kg of CO₂ emissions.

According to the calculations, our approach reduces CO₂ emissions by approximately 37 metric tons every day!

That is why we address enormous worth to the fact that principles of sustainability and transparency and play a significant role along the entire value chain. Furthermore, bringing to the market the offer of good quality and fairly priced sustainable clothing.
