Orloff ensure recycling of used workwear

Recycle your used workwear

Now you and your company can ensure, that the workwear you no longer use, can be further processed, and recycled. Recycling of workwear has been high on our agenda for years. It has been difficult to find the right partner who has a sustainable and well-functioning solution, that we can vouch for.

The initiative regarding the recycling of workwear is a result of our work with UN’s Sustainable Development Goals no. 12 which deals with responsible consumption and production.

Informant: Goal 12: Substantially reduce waste generation | Verdensmålene.dk

The worlds consumption of textiles is known as one of the major sinners when it comes to CO2 footprint and strain at our planet. We work with our suppliers on how they can deliver workwear that is more sustainable. There are many certifications, which in their own way define how textile production can ensure more sustainability. The overall goal is to reduce the total CO2 footprint, so the world consumes fewer resources than those the globe can reproduce.

At Orloff we do not produce the clothes ourselves. Therefore, we depend on our suppliers to take responsibility towards more sustainable production of textiles. Sustainability can be measured in all processes, right from the cotton field or where we find the raw material, during transport, in the design and production.

We also want to take responsibility for the workwear we sell, and we also know that many of our customers want to take responsibility for recycling the workwear that can no longer be used.
Therefore, your company can now make an agreement on handing in the workwear for recycling.

Contact our sales department and hear more about how we can ensure the recycling of clothes together. You can red more in the following, about where and how the workwear is recycled.
