Passing Woolworths, I see the planning application forms are by "New Look Limited" for the redevelopment of the shop, so that is now pretty definite. If you want to see what will be on offer - just clothes ranges, I'm afraid, go to
Some good news, however. They have an ethical trading policy in place, which includes the following details on their website:
New Look strive to reduce the environmental impact of our products. We realise that the bigger picture is a gradual process of research and trialling ranges, but to start this process and with cotton and cotton-mixed fabrics being among our most popular we launched our Organic Cotton range in Summer 2007. Organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides and is therefore better for the environment, and better for the cotton farmers themselves. Due to the success of the Organic Cotton range launched last summer, we are now researching fabrics made from sustainable sources which protect the environment and make use of the world's natural resources. This includes garments made from bamboo, organic cotton, and even fleece made from plastic bottles.
New Look has not used real fur for many years and as part of our commitment to reducing the environmental impact of our business we always use alternatives to fur. We are also researching fabrics made from sustainable sources which protect the environment and make use of the world's natural resources. This includes garments made from bamboo, organic cotton, and even fleece made from plastic bottles.
We recognise that we have a responsibility to our planet to reduce the impact of the packaging on our products. We have introduced a number of initiatives to firstly reduce the amount of packaging, and secondly to recycle the necessary waste effectively.
