Sustainable Uniform Solutions

At Arrow, we firmly believe that businesses and organisations can maintain a professional image while contributing positively to the environment.

To this end, we offer a range of sustainability initiatives to ensure our uniforms are re-utilised and recycled so as to reduce our impact on the environment. We provide clients with the ability
to recycle uniforms that are not at end of use level, and to donate unbranded garments to local charities. We shred end of life uniforms to use as filling for boxing bags. In addition, we also follow best environmental and ethical practices in our factories to align to global audit and certification standards.
