What is needed to kick-start a change to this wasteful sub-sector of the apparel industry is for at least several large buyers to insist on better design, sustainable materials and extended life management. Inspirational leadership in other sectors from companies like Whitbread plc has changed supply chains; we have not succeeded in facilitating this change in this sub-sector. But if you want to join others to procure sustainable corporatewear, contact us at info@uniformreuse.com: We want to return to this issue one day.

Thank you to everyone who has contacted us over the years. There have been successes, but not enough of them.
