Daventry school adopts David Luke Eco-Uniform
Pupils have begun sporting the new uniform, which is made from recycled plastic bottles.

Falconer’s Hill Infants School in Daventry has adopted a new, environmentally friendly uniform supplied by David Luke.
 
Pupils at the Ambassador Eco School are now wearing the supplier’s Eco-Uniform, which is produced from a fabric made using recycled plastic bottles. 
 
David Luke’s managing director Kathryn Shuttleworth visited the school on Tuesday for the launch.
 
“The polyester fibres used in the uniforms comes from post-consumer waste, which is recycled plastic bottles,” says Shuttleworth. “A blazer uses around 16 individual drink-sized bottles; a sweater is a blend with 44 per cent polyester, so each one uses around four bottles.”
 
David Luke introduced the Eco-Uniform range in 2010. All of the Eco-Uniform has some, or all, of the polyester element made from recycled plastic bottles and includes Eco-Blazers, Eco-Jackets, Eco-Trousers, Eco-Skirts and Eco Sweatshirts.
