Workwear Pro Direct buy back your unwanted workwear to reduce landfill waste

Posted on: 12/01/2021

As a significant clothing and branded event merchandise supplier to the UK charitable events sector Identity UK, and partner company Workwear Pro Direct, are very aware of the negative impact that these large-scale events can have on the environment.

Concerned at the volume of post-event materials that ended up in landfill and in line with the company’s sustainability ethos, Identity UK’s Managing Director, Martyn Perry launched a customer “Buy Back” scheme. We believe, the first company in the UK to offer such a service. Buy Back allows customers to send back their unwanted workwear in return for payment.

For every 100kg of workwear that a customer returns they receive a £30 credit to their account. All the Buy Back returns are recycled or disposed of by a waste disposal company in an environmentally safe and efficient way.

With an expanded product range that now includes workwear clothing and staff uniforms, Buy Back covers all garments (of any material) as well as footwear.

Since its launch in January 2019, 850kg of unwanted promotional clothing, workwear and event materials have been recycled under the Buy Back scheme. Without this service, these materials would undoubtedly have ended up in landfill.

The first of its kind, Buy Back is a win for the environment and a win for customers.

If you would like to know more about the Buy Back scheme, contact Martyn Perry at 0800 0239 290
