Taylor Made Designs shares latest environmental impact report

23 May 2024
1,200 kg of materials recalled from clients were collected from the TMD offices / TMD
As part of Taylor Made Design’s (TMD’s) ongoing commitment to its ‘carefully responsible’ sustainability vision, the company has introduced an end of use textile recycling program.

The last report by textile disposal and recycling program partner, Avena, shows , in the first quarter of 2024 approximately 1,200 kg of materials recalled from clients were collected from the TMD offices, sorted, securely shredded down and, where practical to do so, recycled.

When textiles are disposed of via landfill or incineration a side effect is the release of harmful carbon dioxide gases into the environment. By disposing of garments responsibly using this deconstruction and recycling process, a total of 500.345kg of CO2 has been saved from entering our atmosphere.

Ed Taylor, Managing Director, TMD, says: “We are fully committed to the idea of a circular economy where manufacturing materials are recycled rather than dumped as landfill and introduced our ‘end of life’ textile recycling program to provide a secure and sustainable disposal solution for clients. Right now, every second a lorry load of textile waste enters landfill. As an environmentally aware company we are doing our bit to reduce this and it is encouraging to see the positive impact our end of use textiles recycling process is already having on the world around us. TMD already conforms to ISO 9001, the globally recognised standard for quality management and we are in the process of working towards ISO 14001, the internationally recognised standard for environmental management systems (EMS). Achieving this standard is really important to us. In today’s world where climate change, biodiversity loss and resource depletion are affecting the health and sustainability of our planet, company’s like TMD have a significant role to play. The way we structure our processes, dispose of our waste and seek out supply partners with the same sustainability ambitions as ourselves, all contribute to the environmental impact we have on the planet. Working towards ISO 14001 provides a structured approach that guides our practices not only towards regulatory compliance but also towards environmental improvement, whilst also highlighting our environmental commitment to stakeholders, clients and potential clients around the world. We are absolutely committed to meeting this standard.”

In addition to its textile recycling process, TMD also selects partners who share the company’s ‘carefully responsible’ vision, working with a range of suppliers who have strong sustainability ethics.

Ed continues: “Our clients are becoming more and more ethically aware. Right now, it costs more to provide sustainable, ethically sourced workwear because of the costs involved in the manufacture and supply processes. To help clients manage their move to a more sustainable future we provide a full support and consultancy service. Working with clients, we devise strategies that switches-out selected products for more sustainable alternatives in planned and budgeted phases, at a pace that suits both finances and ambitions. The road to a sustainable future is a marathon, not a sprint and we support those willing to make the journey, every step of the way.”
