Comment une marque éco-responsable comme Apnée aborde les soldes ?

How does an eco-responsible brand like Apnée approach sales?

The sales, a temptation for many people, a period of indulgence where six out of ten French people give in to pleasure. In this whirlwind of consumption, 65% wait for these moments, which occur twice a year, to make larger purchases.

For Apnée, as an eco-responsible brand, our commitment to sustainable and recycled parts is reflected in our prices. Designed in France and made in Portugal, our clothes embody quality at a fair price. Our love of the oceans and our ecological awareness are expressed through a powerful concept: “Turning waste into a resource”.
So how does Apnée manage to stay true to its vision of responsible consumption while navigating the waves of promotions during sales?

The different ways to reconcile eco-responsibility and sales

Sales and eco-responsibility are two concepts that may seem contradictory at first glance, as sales are generally associated with an increase in impulse purchases and increased consumption, while eco-responsibility aims to encourage sustainable and respectful consumption choices of the environment. However, there are ways to reconcile these two aspects.

Thoughtful purchases:

During sales, it's important to make thoughtful purchases rather than succumbing to the impulse to buy just because a product is on sale. Before making a purchase, ask yourself questions about whether you really need the product, its durability, and whether you really need it.

Search for eco-responsible brands:

Favor brands that have eco-responsible practices. Look for companies committed to reducing their environmental impact, using sustainable materials, and adopting ethical production practices.

Second-hand purchases:

Opt for second-hand items during sales. Second-hand stores, thrift stores, and specialized online platforms often offer attractive discounts, thereby helping to reduce demand for the production of new goods.

Promoting sustainability:

Encourage retailers to adopt more sustainable practices by expressing your preference for eco-responsible products and requesting information on the origin of the products.

Education and awareness:

Learn about the issues surrounding fast fashion and overconsumption, and share this information with others. Increased awareness can contribute to more informed consumer choices.

Energy and resource savings:

When shopping, consider products that require less energy to manufacture, are recyclable or compostable, and ship with minimal packaging.
