Purchasers of corporatewear should always be mindful of the impacts of their decisions across the whole life of the garment. Corporate clothing sent to landfill is a significant problem and, by addressing this issue in the procurement choices, the ability to recover the items at end-of-life is far greater.
This leaflet is designed to give a quick look at some of the options that can be considered by purchasers in order to allow a more sustainable management process when the clothing is no longer suitable for service in its primary role.
Simple factors can be considered, including choice of fabric, awareness of available end markets and best practice opportunities that are occurring currently in other organisations.
Think…is there a more sustainable option?
The leaflet is developed as an awareness tool. For a better understanding of how to go about the suggestions offered, see the in-depth reports in our research pages.
