As a mother passionate about sustainability but unable to find a second-hand uniform, starting a reliable and straightforward reuse scheme for school uniforms meant they would be available year-round for parents - as and when needed. Smarter Uniforms encompasses all the values that sustainability can contribute to communities, especially as children grow so quickly- and grow out of their uniforms! By rethinking business as usual and preventing costly, unnecessary textile waste, we are fundraising for schools, saving parents money and protecting valuable resources.
I’m excited to be involved in this organic initiative. It’s a breath of fresh air from the corporate big company stuff. The initiative goes hand in hand with my sentiments of; firstly caring for our communities and reducing textile waste. Facilitating a platform to get pre-loved school uniforms to parents and pupils makes perfect sense.
I love how a simple concept can have such great impact, on global waste, environmental education, and family finances. Smarter Uniforms is a great project to be a part of because we're redefining resource-use and cultivating a community that lives more sustainably. It's inspirational!

Smarter Uniforms not only helps provide cheaper uniforms to families but also I love how there are so many educational opportunities for the wider community. Such as sustainability, reducing your water and carbon footprint, the importance of second-hand clothing and promoting change within the uniform and clothing sector. As an International development with Arabic student, I am passionate about highlighting and encouraging community change and exploring how change can occur through sustainable measures
