Van Moer develops and produces customer-specific work clothing in-house. Our ultimate goal is to process materials from depreciated work clothing in new work clothing. The sustainable process has small and large steps in which we are happy to advise.
Why is the product or service circular?
Van Moer's offer is circular, because we actually use depreciated work clothing as a raw material for new work clothing. This is currently the highest possible step in sustainability in the workwear market.
Which circular strategies are applied?
Reduce total amount of materials: We actively monitor market developments. We measure the footprint of new, sustainable fabrics. In this way we can measure CO2 emissions, water and energy consumption compared to conventional workwear fabrics.
Reduce amount of virgin inputs: We collect used clothing and use it as the basis for new fabrics.
Extend the useful life: We look at the models we have developed in terms of confection technology with the aim of maximally extending the first life.
Maximise the reusability or recyclability of materials: Van Moer develops customer-specific in-house, taking into account the intended reuse. We always take a critical look at the raw materials. We are in close contact with stakeholders to monitor the recyclability options.
What are the benefits for procurers?
Van Moer approaches the entire process - starting with a sustainable design, sustainable raw materials, sustainable production and sustainable transport to sustainable reuse.
Circularity is the largest possible step in this, but smaller steps can also be taken so that everyone can contribute to more sustainable work clothing. Van Moer is willing and able to provide excellent and measurable advice.
