Re-imagined Hi-Vis Vest into Back Packs and Children’s Arm Bands

This contractor has engaged with Titanic Denim, a small textile business that helps reduce the environmental impact of fast fashion, Titanic Denim rescue jeans, and other reclaimed materials destined for landfill.  They never thought of using Hi-Vis but will be adding this activity to their portfolio.

The contractor provided old Hi-Vis jackets and coats that were due to go landfill, and made them into bags and reflective armbands that were used for school children who walk or cycle home in the dark winter evenings.

With over 350,000 tonnes of used but still wearable clothing going to landfill in the UK every year contributing to greenhouse gas emissions and climate change, this was an ideal opportunity for the contractor to save on their greenhouse gas emissions and help an SME start-up.
