Bisley Workwear Sustainability Actions

Better packaging

In 2022 we will begin rolling out garment packaging made from 100% recycled Ocean Bound, post-consumer plastics. Pollution and poverty are inextricably linked and Bisley’s packaging partners, Better Packaging Co. work with coastal communities that are most impacted by the compounding effects of pollution and poverty to clean up their beaches and riverways. As a result, the living standards in these communities are raised and their environments improved. Better Packaging Co. is a certified B Corporation and Carbon Neutral, and the programme makes progress towards the UN Global Sustainable Development goals.

Hangers made from ocean waste

We are currently working with Arch & Hook, the most sustainable hanger manufacturer in the world, to replace all our virgin plastic hangers with BLUEWAVE®, a 100% recycled ocean-bound plastic hanger program that is Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certified. With this environmental improvement we also gain knowledge and transparency of our hanger manufacturer. Currently our suppliers manufacture their own hangers, and we have no visibility of the suppliers' manufacturing procedures. As a world leader in Ethical and Sustainable practices, supplying to some of the world’s most recognisable brands, Bisley has confidence that we are making an impact on workers quality of living as well as the environment. The conservative estimate over 2 years, is converting 38 tonnes of post-consumer, ocean bound and marine plastic pollution to Bisley hangers. The result of this is 38 tonnes of virgin plastic being saved from production. Bisley is currently working with Arch & Hook to transition our buttons manufactured from the same ocean-bound plastic innovation. We will commence using the buttons in our production orders from Sept 2022. Bisley currently uses over 38 million buttons per year. The impact of us transitioning to recycled ocean bound plastic buttons is approximately 5.8 tonnes of pollution out of the ocean, resulting in Bisley using 7.26 tonnes less virgin plastic every year. Both the hanger and button programs clean some of the world’s oceans and rivers of pollution. Additionally, it provides quality of life improvements for the communities working with Arch & Hook.

Cleaner oceans and rivers

To further validate our ongoing commitment to cleaner oceans and rivers, Bisley has joined the WWF – EMF Business call for a UN treaty on plastic pollution. As a signatory of the WWF Business call for a UN treaty on plastic pollution Bisley is committed to removing all virgin plastics in our supply chain, packaging, trims, buttons, hangers, zippers, swing tag kimbles and more converting to recycled and sustainable options. Our hanger, button, packaging and trims initiatives demonstrates our dedication and commitment to this treaty. We are working with our suppliers to convert our warehouse pallet wrapping, satchels and tape to biodegradable plastics to further reduce our consumption of virgin plastics. We anticipate this roll out in late 2022.
