NuServe's search for sustainable uniforms
The environmental cost of clothing is huge. From production through to disposal, almost every stage of an item of clothing’s life cycle can cause damage to the planet. For example, most of the cotton grown is not organic and contributes to environmental pollution through the use of pesticides and insecticides.
Therefore, we want to do our bit to reduce the clothing industry’s impact on the world around us. As part of our Planet Mark and B Corp commitments, we searched long and hard to source eco-friendly uniforms but couldn’t find a viable supplier.
At NuServe, we’re on a mission to champion sustainability in business; one of our ways we’re doing this is by making our procurement practices more sustainable. We want to achieve this while working within circular economy principles that minimise waste, pollution and carbon emissions.
