Hi! Worn up grew out of Sustainable Schoolwear which has been been making school and corporate uniforms since 2016.
We decided to start to take back the uniforms that we had made, so they didn't end up in landfill.
Channel 10 'Change Maker' (2020)
AMP 'Tomorrow Maker' (2019)
NSW Circular Pilot Project (2019)
- By running a Textile Rescue Pilot in 2019 we estimated that each school discards about 100 - 200kg of non-wearable uniforms per year.
- This means that potentially over 2000 tonnes of uniform textiles are ending up in Australian landfill.
- Add to this unwearable corporate and sporting club uniforms and you can see the problem!
Once they have become unwearable and put into landfill they can take up to 100 years to breakdown. Help us get at east 100 tonne out of landfill asap.
