At Schoolblazer we are focussed on becoming the most sustainable schoolwear retailer. We now offset all of the carbon emissions created in the production and supply of our garments and have a clear action plan to reduce the carbon intensity of our products and operations.
We believe that the biggest challenge facing the planet is carbon emissions and have chosen to make this our primary focus. However, we’re also working on other environmental initiatives – including moving to recycled polyester, reducing single use plastics and becoming full members of the ETI.
Since our inception in 2004 a key area of focus has been the sustainable creation of uniform and sportswear. One of the biggest issues we face is that all fibre and garment creation uses energy and contributes to our carbon emissions. Our key concept is therefore “Durability = Sustainability”: ensuring clothes are well-made using quality fabrics, to reduce the amount of garment and energy waste by making them last.
Our progress to date and goals for the future are explained in our Environmental Impact Report, released today.
Please get in touch to discuss a more proven, robust and forward-thinking way of providing school uniform and sportswear to your school.
