Sustainability is becoming increasingly important. The topic has long had a broad social impact on how we treat our planet. Fortunately, companies are also taking responsibility on an increasing scale and are increasingly aware of their impact on the environment and the world around us. All sorts of ways are being sought to make business operations more sustainable. Choosing sustainable corporate clothing is an important factor in that process.
Sustainable corporate clothing is clothing that is worn in business and is made from sustainable materials. For example, organic cotton, bamboo or recycled polyester. These materials are better for the environment because they do not use harmful chemicals and use less water and energy in production.
In addition, sustainable industrial clothing often has a longer lifespan than conventional industrial clothing. This means that sustainable industrial clothing lasts longer and needs to be replaced less often. This too contributes to a lower impact on the environment.
Another important aspect of sustainable industrial clothing is that it is often better for employees' health. This is because durable materials are often breathable and more comfortable to wear, contributing to a better working environment and less risk of skin irritation.
There are several reasons why companies choose sustainable corporate clothing. In many cases, this involves a combination of these reasons. We highlight the three most important reasons:
A common reason why companies are actively pursuing sustainability is that sustainability can help improve corporate image. More and more buyers, consumers, but especially in the B2B market, are willing to pay more for products and services from companies that value sustainability. By choosing sustainable corporate clothing, a company can show that it is aware of the impact it has on the environment and that it is doing all it can to reduce this impact.
Second, durable workwear can also contribute to employee well-being. Traditional corporate clothing is often made of synthetic materials that breathe poorly and are not comfortable to wear. In contrast, sustainable corporate clothing is often made of natural materials such as cotton, linen and wool, which are much more breathable and comfortable to wear. This can contribute to a better work environment and more satisfied employees.
Third, sustainable corporate clothing can also help reduce costs in the long run. Although sustainable corporate clothing may seem a bit more expensive at first, it is often of higher quality and lasts longer. This means that companies need to buy new corporate clothing less often, which leads to lower costs in the long run.
