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.

All the garments in our Eco-uniform range contain polyester made from non biodegradable plastic drinking bottles, which would otherwise end up in landfill. Each item consists of part or total polyester content made from recycled plastic bottles.Eco-Uniform Badge-01

Keep a look out for this on all our eco-clothing.

Eco-uniform styles:

  • Eco-blazers & jackets: 100% of the polyester in our Eco-blazers & jackets comes from recycled plastic bottles. Average number of bottles used is 18.
  • Boys Eco-trousers & shorts: 30% of the polyester used in our Boys Eco-trousers & Eco-shorts comes from recycled plastic bottles. Average number of bottles used is 4.
  • Girls Eco-trousers & skirts: 100% of the polyester in our Girls Eco-trousers & Eco-skirts comes from recycled plastic bottles. Average number of bottles used is 5.
  • Eco-polo shirts: 100% of the polyester in our Eco-polo shirts comes from recycled plastic bottles. Average number of bottles used is 2.
  • Eco-sweatshirts: 100% of the polyester in our Eco-Sweatshirts comes from recycled plastic bottles. Average number of bottles used is 3.

What makes it ‘Eco’?

Plastic bottles are used instead of crude oil in the production process to create polyester for our Eco-garments.

The environmental benefits

  • The total process of producing polyester in this way uses less energy and reduces CO2 emissions.
  • Reduction of landfill

Cost, durability, washing & care

  • Eco-uniform should cost no more than an equivalent quality non-eco garment.
  • Every Eco-garment is as durable and high in quality as our non-eco garments.
  • Easy to care for and as comfortable as our non-eco garments.

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.
