New uniforms are expensive because every item goes through a complex manufacture process including packaging and transportation that uses an extraordinary amount of electricity and water, carbon emissions and energy.
All this process generates greenhouse gases, which causes climate change.
The fact is that by simply creating 1 tonne of new uniforms will generate 22 tonnes of greenhouse emissions.
On the contrary, recycle uniform offer:
- A price reduction
- Energy saving
- A reduction in the manufacturing process
- And ultimately a reduction on greenhouse gas emissions
