Summary of Fashion For Good world latest report on reusable packaging!

Posted by Clémence Avignon on May 3, 2021 10:49:49 AM  •  read time 4 min

As a first attempt to do so, we partnered with the largest postal company in France, La Poste, for what we call The French Loop! Read on, it's honestly exciting.
