Making Sportswear Sustainable
May 7, 2021 | Press Releases |
As part of our sustainability initiative, we introduce RIMATCH, a new fabric to provide our customer with a greener alternative when choosing their kit. This innovative fabric is made up of recycled fibres from items that may otherwise have gone to landfill such as plastic bottles. meaning the garments retain the durability and performance of a polyester yarn without the environmental impact of a virgin plastic.
The initial offer from the UK is available as sublimated designs with the option of bespoke or set designs. All recycled polyester products will be internally branded with the recyclable logo and fluoro green back neck tape.
We will be working to develop new sources and increase the product range by the end of 2021 and we will continue to drive ongoing improvements across the business to achieve our goals.
Our sustainability drive is an on-going project, with new developments being introduced all the time. For this reason, we will continue to review our targets and challenge ourselves as a business to be as sustainable as possible.
