Event Details

                                                    

There are 11.6 million wearers of corporate uniform in the UK, who create 15,000 tonnes of uniform waste a year, 90% of which ends up in landfill. We think this issue has been largely overlooked and given the quantities involved, as well as the environmental and financial cost, we think there is a huge opportunity for change.

 

If you’re a corporate with a uniform or if you’re interested in how we can stop uniforms going to landfill, come and join us to explore the issues. We’ll be looking at design, brand identity & security, reuse and repurposing and the barriers that prevent companies taking a more sustainable approach. And we’ll be presenting an innovative case study that has more than just environmental benefits.

 

The event will be chaired by Baroness Young of Hornsey and will feature the following:

  • Alex McIntosh, Managing Director, Christopher Raeburn & Business and Research Associate, Centre for Sustainable Fashion
  • Suzanne Westlake, Head of Corporate Responsibility, Ocado
  • Tony Simpson, Director, HMP Northumberland
  • Kate Riley, Technical Consultant, Oakdene Hollins
  • Trewin Restorick, CEO and Founder, Hubbub
  • Wayne Hemingway, Designer, Hemingway Design 

 

The discussion will be hosted by the APPG ESF Co-Chairs, Baroness Young of Hornsey and Caroline Spelman MP, as well as the APPG ESF secretariat organisations: the Centre for Sustainable Fashion and Hubbub.

 

We want to find out what companies are currently doing and what’s stopping them sourcing and disposing of uniforms more sustainably.. If your company uses uniforms, we’d love to hear from you: please take our survey! All responses kept in strictest confidence.
