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

Mrs Dixon, parent

“At Newport we try to teach students of the importance of recycling and being environmentally aware. Any organisation that is responsible for educating young people has an ethical responsibility to practice what they preach. 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; the fact that their uniforms started life as a drinks bottle makes them even prouder!”.

Gordon Farquhar, Headteacher, Newport Free Grammar School.

 

“We are delighted with this new eco-initiative. The quality of the uniform is excellent – you would never guess the material is made from recycled plastic and the added bonus is that it’s more hard wearing and colourfast than ordinary material”.

Coleen Wilkins, Headteacher, Falconers Hill Infant School.

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.
