I&A believes in not only dressing the generation of tomorrow but also being responsible for ensuring a better-quality future. Ralph Keeling, head of the CO2 programme at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, stated that “we are seeing record levels every year” which is a huge cause for concern because the atmosphere is being heavily impacted by the choices that we make daily. Furthermore, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres highlighted that “COVID and climate
have brought us to a threshold.” We believe that we should all do our part to reduce our carbon footprint. So, we have ensured that up to 90% of our suppliers and manufacturers are UK-based, therefore being intentional about reducing our carbon footprint.
As a carbon-conscious company, we take into consideration the durability of our uniform and its impact on the wider environment. Therefore, our trousers are made from a thick material to withstand the many activities children partake in. They are coated with Teflon™ Fabric Protector with repels oil, stains, and water. This makes them easy to clean and keeps them looking fresh for longer.
Fabric protected by Teflon™ is protected from stains, therefore requiring less frequent washing is necessary. It also successfully removes 95% of all water and oil-based stains, achieving 25 to 40% faster drying times. This means that their useful lives are extended which is extremely beneficial for you. Not only does it save you money, but it also conserves electricity as drying time is reduced and you can wash them in cold water which removes stains just as effectively too.
Our sweatshirts and cardigans are made from 40% recycled materials, therefore, reducing energy and waste as they repurpose recycled plastic to fabric. Additionally, we have an Eco-uniform provider who supplies blazers and ties made from recycled bottles. Further to this, our knitwear has a magic fit, therefore tailored to your child’s body, and contains organically sustained cotton causing further reduction to our carbon footprint.
We also have biodegradable water bottles available for purchase, and we intend to increase the available range of source ethically sourced stationery and school accessories.
We are committed to doing our part in guaranteeing a bright future, but we cannot make a difference alone. We ask that you partner with us by using as many recyclable materials as possible and making more environment-conscious decisions, so together we can create a sustainable future for the generation of tomorrow. Each choice has a wider impact. Our greatest investment is the children of this generation.
Your school uniform, our great price! Dressing the generation of tomorrow.
