France Warns People To Avoid Buying New Clothes on Black Friday

The French minister initiated the campaign for ecological transition to help people save money and help the environment.

Christophe Béchu said the idea will promote sustainable living

Shopping Harms The Environment

The Macron-led government suggested that citizens avoid shopping for clothes by launching an eco-friendly campaign.

The environmentalist campaign was launched by Christophe Béchu, French minister for ecological transition.

Mr. Béchu put out a video advertisement suggesting people boycott buying clothes on Black Friday to promote sustainable living.

Studies have found that up to 80% of Black Friday products are thrown away, ending up in landfills.

French Union Strikes Back

The French Union of Fashion and Clothing Industries and the Union of Textile Industries issued a joint statement condemning the government’s campaign.

“We ask for its immediate withdrawal, failing which we will consider legal action for commercial denigration,” it said. Mr. Béchu acknowledged his ill-conceived advert but said he wouldn’t put it down.
