H&M will now help hospitals fight the deadly COVID-19!
The Sweden-based fast fashion retailer will now ask its supply chain to manufacture protective gears so that all the doctors and medical staff in Europe are able to better handle the virus that has created havoc across the globe.
Following H&M’s initiative to help the European Union (EU) fight COVID-19, EU has reportedly asked the retailer to share its purchasing operations and logistic ability so that supplies can be sourced.
While confirming the same, a spokeswoman of H&M has said that initially the brand will donate the supplies.
More on the same, Anna Gedda, Head of Sustainability, H&M shared “This is a first step in our efforts to support in whatever way we can. We are all in this together and have to approach this as collectively as possible.”
While, H&M has been informed that face masks are the ones in maximum demand, there is a huge requirement for gloves and gowns as well.
Recently, H&M’s competitor Zara too had put efforts to make hospital garments in addition to making gloves and masks in Spain, which too has been hugely affected by COVID-19.
