Just like our old uniforms, sustainability comes in all shapes and sizes! We’re delighted to contribute to Upparel, recycling old staff uniforms into a second life while closing the loop on textile waste.
Once textiles are sorted and assessed for recycling, they are broken down through an industrial tearing process to create a fine fluffy fibre. This recycled fibre is used to create a unique material for packaging, signage, homewares and much more.
For every 1kg of textiles that avoids landfill, an average 3-4kg of greenhouse gases is prevented from polluting the atmosphere. 100% of the recoverable textiles that go to Upparel are reused, repurposed, or recycled within our Australian and New Zealand ecosystem – meaning absolutely nothing is sent to landfill. And that’s a great thing!
