The French parliament’s lower house yesterday approved a bill that makes cheaper fast fashion products, particularly from China, less attractive to buyers. All voting lawmakers unanimously approved the bill.

Seeking penalties on ultra-fast fashion products to help offset their environmental impact, the bill plans a surcharge linked to fast fashion’s ecological footprint of €5 (~$5.45) per item from next year.

The draft law notes that the government will apply criteria like volume of clothes produced and turnover speed of new collections to determine what constitutes fast fashion. Fast fashion producers will be forced to inform consumers about the environmental impact of their output, according to global newswires.
