F&P: Leading The Way In Sustainability
HANDLING SUSTAINABLE WHOLESALE CLOTHING
Clothes, Shoes and Accessories
As a result of globalization, the fashion industry has been extremely focused on manufacturing overproduction and profit maximization. This situation has originated a new trend of “leftovers,” in which alarmingly large quantities of shoes and clothing are being dumped. All in pursuit to make room for the new collections.
Thus, it is very important to acknowledge that the production of textiles and footwear has devastating consequences for the environment. Just to get an idea, according to the data obtained by the IEA (International Energy Agency), the textile and leather productions emit approximately 89 million metric tons of CO₂ annually. Additionally, according to Quantis (2018), there are figures on footwear production which reach approximately 700 million metric tons on emissions annually. Indeed the CO₂ emission is playing a big role here, however, it is also very important to keep in mind the massive consumption of electricity and water being generated!
F&P Stock Solution is committed to finding ways to support, reduce waste and find new ways to foster the circular economy and contribute to environmental aiding. This is possible by giving 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. This opens an opportunity for the B2B customers interested in buying this stock of clothing to avoid new ones being manufactured.
Hence, our wholesale and stock clothing business model aims on making a significant contribution to greenhouse gas reduction and the conservation of resources. By addressing greater sustainability in the supply chain of our business partners!

Sustainable Supply Chain
F&P Stock Solution ensures that the value chain of both – suppliers and B2B wholesale fashion customers – to be more sustainable whilst aiding the fashion industry.
Do you want to know how this could happen?
Very easy, firstly, the supply chain initiates when the suppliers decide to sell their liquidation pallets and overstock avoiding the destruction of the unsold apparel.
Secondly, a positive impact is catered when the B2B wholesale fashion customers purchase these products. Every purchase realized by the customers sustains and nourishes the decrease of the CO₂ footprint. The best part, no new fashion goods have to be produced!
A complete sustainable stock clothing process is being approached.
The remaining clothing stocks from the suppliers do not have to be disposed of or destroyed.

How does F&P contribute?
Since 2013, F&P’s main mission has been to engage in the purchase and sale of stock clothing surplus products or customer returns. Giving a new opportunity to those products to have a use thanks to the sustainable stock clothing approach.
The goal of the company is not merely based on profit maximization, that is why since 2018 the company got ECG certified after having successfully undergone the Economy for the Common Good audit.
It can be said that by reselling leftover fashion stocks – shoes, textiles and accessories – it is endorsed to decimate the destruction of unsold fashion and footwear products.
We want to encourage companies to reduce the need to produce new products. In this way, everybody wins – wholesale clothing and shoes suppliers and customers benefit from the sustainable stock clothing solution approach.
The impact of considering sustainable methods in the textile industry is significant. An example that is worth mentioning is the production and delivery of a cotton T-shirt. The production chain activities get to generate an average of around 7kg of CO₂ emissions.
Considering all this and calculations based on the figures from the production chains, our sustainable stock clothing business model reduces approximately 37 metric tons of CO₂ emissions every day!
