Why Recycle your Old School Uniform?
 

Waste in the production of uniforms is vast! There is waste and adverse environmental impacts from every stage of the complex manufacturing process that uses an extraordinary amount of electricity and water. Then after all this the child grows and a perfectly good uniform could go to waste often landfill just because it doesn’t fit that particular child any more. But what if there was a better way?
 
School uniforms can last a very long time if cared for and laundered using eco-friendly products rather than harsh chemicals and optical brighteners which can fade and strip away the colour and wear them out before their time. If you have a child who has grown out of their uniform or no longer needs it why not do your bit for the environment and pass on your old uniform and come to a community school uniform swap to find a new one for this year?
