I think the idea that it is made from recycled polyester is good and the fact that we're putting recycling to another use is fantastic.

Alice, High School Pupil

“The blazer looks very well made with plenty of pockets. We were pleased to read it’s been made from recycled plastic. Very pleased with your product.”

Mrs Wilkinson, parent.

“The quality of the uniform is fantastic, my 3 year old son wears the trousers for pre-school, he is very active, always climbing, falling over and getting himself filthy. The trousers are still as good as new, they wash brilliantly, even on a 15 degree wash. All three of my children wear the sports shorts for PE at school, and again they wash brilliantly, all the uniforms still look as good as new. I would definitely recommend to friends.”

Leighanne, mum of three.

“We need to do more to prevent waste to landfill. Supporting markets for recycled products is important.”

Mrs Dixon, parent.

Using recycled plastic bottles to make the Eco-fabric for the blazers is a fantastic way to demonstrate to children how products can go on to become something entirely different through the process of recycling. Students are proud to wear their uniforms.
