The environment is in greater peril than ever before, and consumption of plastics is at an all time high. Without recycling initiatives, this plastic simply enters landfill to further pollute the planet. Trying to find alternatives means getting creative, and school uniform designers — David Luke has done just that, with a scheme to turn plastic bottles into polyester school uniforms. They have recently expanded their range of eco uniforms, and in doing so have hit a milestone quantity of repurposed plastic bottles saved from landfill.
The expanded eco uniform range now includes trousers, skirts, sweatshirts and polo shirts, each coming in a full range of colours and sizes. Every item in the eco range has been created using all or part polyester content, which has been made from the recycled plastic bottles.
The increase in eco friendly uniforms has caused a massive increase in recycled content being used in the manufacture of the clothes, and has brought their recycling total to 8.84million 2 litre plastic bottles saved from landfill since 2013. The uniforms are available from their website, and are heartily endorsed by schools and parents alike for their quality and durability.
A spokesperson for www.DavidLuke.com explained, “Sustainability and ethics have become our most important guiding principles. Long ago we learned how to master the craftsmanship required to make great quality, affordable school uniforms, so now we have set about improving our business in terms of its environmental impact. Education prepares children for the world of the future, and that’s why as contributors to the education system, we have to protect the world of the future. We are committed to doing so, and our expanded eco product range means children can now be clothed in entirely recycled materials.”
