Two in seven working people in the UK wear a uniform. Nearly 33 million corporate garments are provided for their use and around 90% - 15,000 tonnes - goes to landfill or incineration each year. Concerns over security and brand protection along with the complexities of recovering and de-branding uniforms explain why so few are reused or recycled.

Our research into unwanted corporate uniforms began when Ocado approached us with a batch of uniforms that they no longer needed, but knew were made of good quality material and could be put to good use. They were seeking a creative solution to a problem, we discovered, was huge and hadn't been addressed.

Collaborate with us

Building on our work with Ocado, we're planning a new campaign that will look at design, production, wear and after use of corporate uniforms. If you'd like to find out more or are interested in collaborating with us on a national campaign to raise awareness about environmental solutions for corporate uniforms, please get in touch.
