At Pull&Bear we are committed to protecting the environment. Respect towards the nature is of vital importance to us and we want to contribute to sustainable development of the society. Here are some of the activities and objectives proposed up till now within the Environmental commitment that is included in the Inditex Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility at www.inditex.com
IN THE STORE
WE SAVE ENERGY: ECO-EFFICIENT STORE
We are developing an eco-efficient management model with the purpose of reducing energy consumption by 20%, integrating sustainability and energy efficiency criteria, from store design, lighting, heating and cooling systems, to the possible recycling of furniture and decoration. Therefore, we help to reduce CO2 emissions and we fight against climate change.
WE ARE REDUCING WASTE AND RECYCLING: REUSE PROGRAMME
Pull&Bear carries out comprehensive management of store waste. The hangers and alarms are collected from the establishments in order to turn them into other plastic items. Furthermore, all the card and plastic used in packaging is recycled.
WE OFFER TRAINING AND AWARENESS-RAISING TO OUR TEAMS
We are continually training our staff to rationalise energy consumption and to raise environmental awareness both on a professional and personal level. Said plans are carried out by both through internal communication campaigns and specific multimedia training projects.
IN CUSTOMER SERVICE
MORE ECOLOGICAL BAGS
All plastic bags that we give our customers are biodegradable, preventing pollution caused by conventional plastic. The D2W additive ensures 100% biodegradation of the plastic.
Furthermore, our paper bags are FSC certified which guarantees that all the production process, from exploitation of the forests where the raw material comes from to the delivery in store, complies with rigorous respect for the environment.
RECYCLABLE GIFT CARDS AND AFFINITY CARDS
Both cards are completely recyclable due to their PET composition and use of ecological PCV-free paint.
WE GENERATE RECYCLABLE INFORMATION
All communication material for our customers, from store directories to personnel search forms, is made of recycled paper or bears the FSC or PEFP mark (guarantee of sustainable forest management certification).
Our commitment to the environment extends to the products we make:we work with environmentally friendly materials. A good example of this is the manufacturing of footwear that is free of PVC.
All Pull&Bear products including materials of animal origin comply with the applicable Inditex standard. This policy requires that these products must always come from animals treated in an ethical and responsible manner. Under no circumstances may animal products deriving from animals slaughtered exclusively for the sale of their skins, shells, horns, bones, feathers, down or any other material be used. Pull&Bear does not sell products containing fur, in keeping with the principles of the Fur Free Retailer Program (Fur Free Alliance), of which the Inditex Group is a member. Neither the cosmetics sold by Pull&Bear nor their ingredients have been tested on animals.

Pursuant to the applicable rules and regulations in each jurisdiction, the rule of the "reverse charge" (article 194 of Directive 2006/112) may apply to goods supplied in certain Member States of the European Union if the customer is or is required to be a taxable person for VAT purposes. If this is the case, no VAT will be charged by PULL&BEAR NEDERLAND B.V., without affecting the customer’s obligation to account for the VAT attributable to them.
13. EXCHANGE/RETURNS POLICY
If you are contracting as a consumer, you have the right to withdraw from the Contract, within 14 days, without giving any reason.
The withdrawal period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the products or in case of multiple products in one order delivered separately, after 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier indicated and by you acquires, physical possession of the last product.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, you may notify us at PULL&BEAR NEDERLAND B.V., at the address Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 305, 1012 RM, Amsterdam, Holland, at the telephone number 0800 023 4304 by writing an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by using our contact form, of your decision to withdraw from this Contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or e-mail). You may use the model withdrawal form as set out in the Annex to the Conditions, but it is not obligatory.
To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.
If you withdraw from this Contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us) without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this Contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction. In any event, you will not incur any fees as result of such reimbursement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may withhold reimbursement until we have received the products back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the products, whichever is the earliest.
You shall deliver the products or hand them over to us at any PULL&BEAR stores in the Netherlands, drop off the item at any of the authorized delivery points using a returns-paid label that we send to you upon your request or send them back to [PULL&BEAR NEDERLAND B.V., Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 305, 1012 RM, Amsterdam, Holland] without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your withdrawal from the Contract to us. This obligation will be considered as having been fulfilled if the goods are returned within this 14-day period.
You shall bear the direct costs of returning the products, unless you hand the goods over in a PULL&BEAR store in the Netherlands or drop them off at any of the authorized delivery points.
You are only liable for any diminished value of the products resulting from the handing other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products.
In addition to the legally recognized right to cancel for consumers mentioned in clause 13.1 above, we grant you a period of 30 days from the date the products are received to return the products (except those mentioned in clause 13.3 below, for which the statutory right to cancel is excluded). In case you return the products within the contractual term of the right of withdrawal, but once the statutory period of 14 days from the date of delivery has expired, you will be reimbursed, only, with the amount paid for said products excluding the delivery costs. You will be responsible for the direct costs of returning the product, unless you hand the products over in a PULL&BEAR store in the Netherlands or dropped them off at one of the authorized delivery points.
You may exercise your contractual right of withdrawal in accordance with the provision of clause 13.1 above, however, should you inform us about your intention of withdrawing from the Contract. You will be reimbursed by the same means of payment to the extent technically possible.
If you wish to withdraw from the Contract within the time limit stated in the clause 7 above, you can return the merchandise to us at any of our Pull&Bear stores (except outlet stores) in the Netherlands or by dropping it off at any authorised delivery points. You must deliver the merchandise in the same packaging in which you received it, following the instructions that you can find in the “RETURNS” section of our website / app.. Neither option involves any additional cost to you. If you are unable to return the products to us through the two free options that we offer, you will be liable for bearing the cost of returning them in an alternative manner. Please note that if you return the goods to us at our expense, we will be entitled to charge you for the direct cost we incur as a result.
For any queries, please contact us through our contact form or by telephone at 0800 023 4304.
If there is a Pull&Bear store in the market in which you were delivered the product, you can make the return in the store itself. In this event, you must go to the store in person and deliver the article and the returns document (hereinafter referred to as the "receipt”) that you will have received when the product was correctly delivered.
If this is not possible, you must call us at 0800 023 4304 in order to arrange product pick-up with us or with one of our representatives. In both cases, you must deliver the receipt that you will have received when the product was correctly delivered along with the product to be returned.
Please return the article in or including its original packaging as well as the instructions, documentation and packaging that may have accompanied it.
We will fully examine the returned product and will notify you of your right to a refund of the amounts paid. The refund will be made as soon as possible, and within 14 calendar days from the date on which you informed us of your intention to withdraw. The refund will be made using the same payment method which was used to make the purchase. No exchange or refund will be made for any products that are not in the same condition in which you received them, or that have been used beyond mere opening of the product.
You can only make exchanges for the same article in a different size or colour.
In circumstances where you consider that the product does not conform with the Contract at the time of delivery, you should promptly contact us through our contact form, specifying the details of the product and the damage suffered. Alternatively, you can call us at 0800 023 4304 where you will be told how to proceed.
The product must be returned to any of our Pull&Bear store in your market or to a authorised delivery point. We will fully examine the returned product and will notify you of your right to a replacement or refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund or replacement as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you are entitled to a refund or replacement of the defective product.
Products returned by you due to a genuine flaw or defect will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us. We will always refund any money received from you to the credit card originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
