We live in a world where environmental impact is a pressing concern, and it is crucial for businesses to be transparent about their green credentials. However, navigating this landscape can be challenging. That’s why we’re pleased to inform you about an important development that can help our industry maintain its integrity.

As leaders in the Schoolwear Industry, it is essential for both our wholesale and retail members to align with this government guidance and the Green Claims Code.
