Gucci is going green—and it's not with Envy. "The main focus of [Gucci's recent] proposals is to cut paper consumption and reduce Carbon dioxide omissions," says Vogue UK. That includes changing its packaging. From now on, the Italian luxury fashion brand will solely use FSC Certified 100 percent recyclable paper for its packaging. This means new shopping bags, which will feature "a de-bossed logo with both ribbon and garment bags [that] have been changed from polyester to ribbon." And it's not just Gucci's packaging that's going green; the company's mannequins will soon be too." [BlackBook]
