THE ORIGINAL SUSTAINABLE SCRUB

Creating a range of scrubs from 100% recycled material is just the first step in our sustainable workwear vision

Australia sends approximately 800,000 tonnes of textile waste to landfill annually, so we knew we needed to do more to help solve this urgent problem.

While we’re not a recycling business, we’ve created Operation Green Scrubs*, a program for end-of-life garment recycling and building awareness around its importance.

With your help, we’ll look after our beautiful planet and make a positive change to the way end-of-life textiles are managed in the health sector, by collecting, sorting and recycling your old scrubs.

*Only available for our Australian customers. Operation Green Scrubs is a partnership with Textiles Recyclers Australia, a Melbourne-based business that has already diverted 615 tonnes of textile waste from landfill.

A new life for your old scrubs

What’s really exciting is the many new products can be made from the old fibres. From the fuzz on the outside of tennis ball, garden gloves, pet bed filling and even ceramic floor tiles. There are so many ways your old scrubs can be given a new life.

How the circular economy works

Prepare

Remove any branding, sort into natural and artificial fibres, remove accessories including buttons, zips, elastic and waist ties.

Process

Batch materials for repurposing in Australia or prepare for shipping to recycling partners overseas, where the recycling process is certified.

Repurpose

Create new products like ceramic tiles for use in construction projects or second-life products such as gardening gloves, tennis ball fuzz or stuffing for pet beds and couches.

Report

Provide reports for our corporate partners and updates on our website and social media channels about the amount of waste diverted from landfill.
