I didn't know you could make school uniform out of plastic bottles. That's really cool.Pupil, aged 9
Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging 19.5 million children and nearly 1.5 million teachers across 67 countries, making it the largest educational programme on the planet.
Since 1994, Eco-Schools England has been empowering students to drive change and improve their environmental awareness through the same simple Seven Step process that has been used successfully across the world. Their student-led programme involves hands-on, real-world learning, motivating the whole school and the wider community to take part in exciting environmental projects based on their nine Eco-Schools topics.
The award programme guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life. Each of the schools involved in the programme has actively tackled environmental issues from litter and waste recycling to healthy living and biodiversity.
Since the partnership began, awareness of our Eco-uniform has improved hugely and is fast becoming a talking point for change in many schools across the UK. Schools recognise that our Eco-uniform is a more tangible way of teaching pupils about waste recycling and encourages social responsibility.
With prices of our eco uniform comparable to non eco uniform of the same quality, it is a manageable change for schools to undertake and for parents to afford.

“Keep Britain Tidy is excited to be working in partnership with David Luke and their eco-uniform range, which uses less energy to produce than a standard blazer and is helping to reduce landfill of waste plastic drinking bottles. Via our Eco-Schools programme, we’re looking forward to highlighting this practical demonstration of the link between improving the environment and the impact on education.”
Phil Barton, Chief Executive, Keep Britain Tidy.
The quality of the uniform is fantastic, my 3 year old son wears the trousers, 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.Leighanne, Mum of three
