Shoppers aged from 21 to 35 constitute the largest demographic on the Myntra for Earth store, with 40% of store traffic coming in from metro areas. About 62% of visitors to the sustainable store are women, the company disclosed in a statement.
Over the recent past, Myntra has undertaken multiple sustainability initiatives, including:
· Collaboration with LENZING™ ECOVERO™ to create apparel made of certified renewable wood sources using an eco-responsible production process
· Bubble wrap and air-filled plastic pouches packaging replaced with recycled paper shreds
· Equipping two of its largest fulfilment centers — in Bhiwandi and Bilaspur — with solar roof panels, generating electricity to meet 35% of the operational demand.
