We recently teamed up with UPPAREL to reduce our textile waste, particularly our used PPE (personal protective equipment).
Upparel is Australia and New Zealand's leader in textile recovery and recycling. Its Textile Recycling Collection Program addresses the fashion industry's impact on the environment by:
- preventing textiles from reaching landfills
- extending the lifespan of clothing through efficient sorting and recycling
- raising awareness about the environmental impact of textile waste.
Upparel won 'Best Waste and Recycling Solution' at the 2023 Victorian Sustainability Awards.
Upparel bins are installed across our offices and project sites. See what happens to our donated clothing:
