Next, Asos and Amazon have decided to pull all Boohoo clothing from sale as growing anger over workers’ pay and conditions at the company’s suppliers resulted in £1.5bn being wiped from the fast fashion brand’s value in two days. Allegations that some factories in Leicester that sell clothes to Boohoo pay as little as £3.50 an hour and failed to protect workers from coronavirus emerged last week.
On Tuesday, the three online retailers were joined by very.co.uk and Zalando, a European e-commerce giant that had €6.4bn sales in 2019, in removing Boohoo clothes from sale.
Next said the company took action last week in response to a report from the campaign group Labour Behind the Label. An Amazon spokesperson said: “Selling partners are required to follow all applicable laws, regulations, and Amazon policies when selling in our store. We will be suspending the sale of the brands in question.”
