Nov 27, 2023

At Pryors Apparelmaster, our dedication to sustainability and corporate responsibility is at the forefront of everything we do. One significant aspect of this commitment is our proactive approach to minimising textile waste and ensuring responsible disposal of garments. To support us reaching this goal, we forged a partnership with Impact Textile Recycling (formerly Upparel) in October 2022, marking a pivotal step in our sustainability journey.

Recently, we received the comprehensive data for our first year of collaboration, and the figures are truly remarkable. From October 2022 to October 2023, Pryors Apparelmaster successfully diverted an impressive 11,623 kgs of textiles away from landfills. This initiative not only prevented textile waste but also contributed to avoiding the release of 40,679 kgs of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. To put these achievements into perspective, this is equivalent to the emissions from burning 12,327 kgs of coal, powering 22.1 homes with electricity for a year, or covering the distance of 277,847 kms driven by an average passenger vehicle.

We take immense pride in these accomplishments and consider them a significant milestone in our sustainability efforts. These results not only reflect our commitment to environmental stewardship but also serve as a benchmark for continuous improvement in the years to come. We are excited about building on these achievements and setting even higher standards for our sustainability initiatives in the future.
