Tidy partnership for David Luke
Schoolwear supplier strengthens its eco-credentials.


By Laura Turner

1 October 2013

David Luke has become an official partner of the charity Keep Britain Tidy’s Eco Schools programme in England.
 
Eco Schools is an international awards programme, to which around 17,500 schools are signed up. In England, the programme is run by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, who guides schools on becoming sustainable.
 
As a partner, David Luke’s involvement will include highlighting the production process of its rapidly expanding Eco Uniform, the fabric of which is made from recycled plastic bottles.
 
“We first developed Eco Blazers and Jackets almost four years ago but, for 2014, we will also have trousers, skirts, sweatshirts and polos,” says David Luke’s MD, David Burgess. “There has to be a realisation that low prices are not going to deliver long-term benefits and that sustainability, and using our resources wisely, will bring far greater rewards.”
