WELLINGTON – Five of New Zealand's largest businesses have joined forces to find new ways to reuse employee uniforms and reduce textile waste. Air New Zealand, Fonterra, the New Zealand Post, SKYCITY Auckland and The Warehouse Group – which collectively produce more than 60,000 uniforms every year - have set up a working group to look at what to do with old uniforms and are seeking to find an environmentally and commercially sustainable business solution.
