LIMA is the first store in the country that brings together brands that aim for sustainability in different industries, certified by the Sustainable Fashion Association of Peru (AMSP).
According to information published in El Comercio, the fashion industry is the most polluting in the world, after the oil sector. “Annually, 20% of water pollution is attributed to the textile industry, as well as 10% of carbon emissions in the world”, they explained.
This is why many companies today wish to change that, by incorporating sustainability production models into their production. This way they commit to the environment.
In LIMA “you will find more than 20 brands involved in the fashion world, accessories, jewelry, personal care, decoration and others”, El Comercio said.
