Sustainable uniform destruction

Branded materials and uniforms are responsibly deconstructed.

At TRA we are helping Australia’s largest organisations keep unwanted pre and post-worn uniforms out of landfill. Greatly reducing the impact on the environment.

Many organisations supply uniforms to their teams. When the uniforms have been used or there is a rebrand, businesses are left wondering what to do with the attire. By upcycling uniforms, we give responsible companies and schools a solution to recycle, support the circular economy. As you can see below, uniforms are cleaned and shredded. These fibres are then spun into new yarn.

The what and how

Many are confused about the difference between waste and recycling. Even though unwanted textiles are termed as ‘waste’, the outcome of waste streams and recycling are two different things. Waste equates to landfill or burning and recycling creates ‘second-life’ solutions.

Environmental benefits

TRA proudly weighs and documents the amount of kilograms kept out of landfill each month. Sharing this important information with our customers to educate their team and customers. The supply chain is transparent as the solutions for types of materials are found, protecting our planet and people from textile pollution.

Case Studies

Branded uniforms and merchandise can cause a concern for businesses as people come and go or brand identity changes. Talk to us about current case studies offering solutions to your unused garments.
