Wearing a uniform is an important part of school life, but it does not have to be ordinary. Did you know, that your child’s schooluniform could actually save the environment and the oceans from plastic pollution!

We know that we have to take care of our planet. This is an important message we include in our uniforms with clear labelling. But latest since the climate and environmental activist Greta Thunberg established the worldwide #fridaysforfuture, the youth is very aware of the fact that things needs to be changed!
We encourage that and supply educational videos and learning materials to teach the kids about environmental issues as well as content for school newsletters about different environmental topics.
Luckily, there are many reasons why there should be school uniforms in public schools. Whether it’s simplifying your kid’s morning routine or creating an even playing field, uniforms come with an array of benefits for children, parents, and teachers.
As local school boards are focusing more on improving campus safety, and sustainability a growing number have begun requiring school uniforms — typically, a polo shirt of a particular color paired with navy or khaki pants, skirts or shorts, preferable made from recycled material. Kids and students can be proud wearers of outfits with which they actually helped to clean-up the environment. A look at the label inside and they know how many bottles are used for their shirt or pants. Scanning the QR code will bring them to the video.
