Being Kind To The Planet
What kind of effect we have on the environment is of great importance to us, and we’ve done a lot to ensure our business has a positive impact.
To bolster our commitment, we hold ISO 14001 accreditations which support our ongoing drive to reduce any negative impact on the environment.
Below are just some examples of how we strive to respect our planet.
DROP AND SWAP SERVICE
Old unused workwear can be deposited into our recycling boxes and collected during the delivery of products weekly via our Drop and Swap service.
- These bins are made available to high usage sites
- The boxes are collected during the weekly delivery to reduce carbon emissions
- The garments are then sent to our recycling partner for material recovery to be repurposed in garment manufacture
Recent projects include the Balfour Beatty Workplace merger with Cofely UK, that saw a full rebrand, leaving Balfour Beatty uniform no longer required.
To this date, 3 tonnes of old branded workwear from the merger have been collected and recycled into a variety of items. This includes turning discarded garments into rags and wipers for industry to repurposing in garment manufacture.
