- Transitioning selected garments to be made from recycled PET bottles;
- Transitioning selected packaging of uniforms to 100% recyclable polybags;
- Transitioning woven tags and labels to recycled PET yarn and FSC recycled carboard, printed with soy ink; and
- Facilitating the recycling of Westpac and other branded uniforms with Upparel, who turn textile waste into new materials with a variety of uses and applications.
