Circular economy

Schijvens strives for a circular economy, where products are as much as possible – preferably 100% – reusable and where the impact to the environment and raw materials remains as limited as possible. The circular economy offers new possibilities and opportunities. Schijvens together with its co-innovation partners, is continuously seeking to improve and is actively working on improving the sustainability of corporate clothing collections as well as the production process. Collaboration is necessary to achieve this ambition.

Circular companies that are with and for each other.

100% recycled clothing for Stayokay

The sustainably produced post-consumer corporate clothing for all Stayokay personnel is a current project that is being rolled out. Since the start of April 2017, personnel are wearing corporate clothing that consist of 50% ‘already worn textiles’ mixed with 50% recycled polyester. This collection is also a reflection of the sustainability policies of both parties: Schijvens and Stayokay. This collection is the first pilot in the ECAP project, an initiative of the European Union to undertake a circular shape in the textile sector.

After Stayokay many other projects of circular yarns followed.
