Recycle, Reduce,
Repurpose

We are acting on our responsibility as a sportswear brand and aim to be producing all polyester-based sportswear with recycled fabric by 2025.

Recycle, Reduce, Repurpose

Our mantra of sustainability.
From a commitment to using recycled polyester as standard by 2025 to developing eco-friendly packaging, explore our vision today.

OFFSET

Carbon negative UK operations.
Every month, Scimitar funds the planting of 280 fully-traced trees in both rainforests & the UK, equivalent to 26.49 tonnes of carbon reduction. 

WearThenShare™

Unprecedented recycling of used kit.
In partnership with Tag Rugby Trust & NPAC, we’ll pick up disused/old sportswear from our clients when we deliver their new kit.

The Problem.

It’s time to share our vision & mantra of sustainability.

Plastic pollution is a worldwide problem.

From the bottles we drink to the clothes we wear, the use of virgin polyester and plastic has been increasing consistently for the past 65 years. The rates of recycling do not match this substantial growth.

We are acting on our responsibility as a sportswear brand and aim to be producing all polyester-based sportswear with recycled fabric by 2025. Furthermore, with brand-new developments such as paper-based packaging, we are cutting down on hundreds of tonnes of plastic one-use waste.

Eco Partnerships.

Over the past 12 months, we've forged strong relationships with Rainforest Concern, WWF & National Trust amongst others.

The Plastic problem.
STATS THAT MATTER

Why a need for change?

Up to 12 million tonnes of plastics are being swept into the oceans annually.

There are 500,000,000,000 plastic bags used globally each year. That’s 500 billion.

1,000,000 plastic bottles are purchased and consumed, globally, every minute.

50% of consumer plastics are single use. The biggest culprit is packaging.

10% of all human-generated waste is plastic.
