As the global population continues to grow and we can see the long-term consequences of excessive energy use and industrial growth, we have a responsibility to play our part in reducing, recycling and repurposing. ENVYRO is our latest fabric offering, which is manufactured from recycled and sustainable materials.
While plastic consumption is on the rise, we’re doing our part to give single-use plastic bottles a second life. ENVYRO is the cornerstone of our sustainable eco-conscious program, where we have proudly reduced our water and energy consumption, invested in product development and realigned our environmental values for a sustainable future.
Driven by environmental, economic and social responsibilities, everyone from our elite sports teams through to grassroots organisations now have an opportunity to join us, as we play with purpose and look to the future of recycled performance fabrics.
ENVYRO TECHNOLOGY BUILT INTO GILBERT TEAMWEAR
Our custom teamwear apparel, now made from recycled plastic bottles can be made exclusively to suit your club or schools’ requirements. We’ve been working hard to deliver a teamwear program featuring our ENVYRO sustainable fabrics, which will allow us to repurpose hundreds of thousands of single use plastic bottles from the environment every year.
You’re in safe hands with our experienced account managers, who are able to assist you every step of the way through our 6-8 week production timeline, ensuring your kit is delivered on time and with our ENVYRO point-of-difference.
Join us as we continue to work towards our ultimate goal of a sustainable future.
As well as being made from recycled plastic bottles, the garment construction process also uses less water and energy to produce your ENVYRO garment than traditional methods. Also the plastic polybag and swing tag are made from recycled materials.
The number of bottles in each garment is an estimate only and can vary based on the size and type of garment. You can refer to recycled bottles chart to find out how many bottles are used in the construction of your garment.
We offer everything from Rugby Jerseys, Training Tees, Jackets, Polos, Gym Shorts, Hoodies, and many more garments.
No, our colour testing on new ENVYRO garments has ensured a close to exact match is achievable through our sublimation colour options. You can also refer to our samples for dyed fabrics, which uses a process that requires less water and up to 30% less energy.
We’ve product tested all ENVYRO garments with no visible shinkage detected.
Please follow care instructions included with your garment for best results.
Each Envyro fabric is different, we’ve specifically developed care label
instructions that advise on the best method of caring for your garment.
No there’s no additional wait time for your recycled ENVYRO garment, your
account manager will be able to advise on lead-times at the time of your order placement.
We’ve fused a blended fabric with our recycled plastic fibres, meaning while your product is made from recycled plastic bottles it won’t be able to be recycled. Think of it as a second life for single-use plastic.
All of our products that carry our ENVYRO swing tags are certified to be made from recycled fibres.
Microplastics are tiny particles of plastic fibers that can come loose from clothing during the washing process, ending up in wastewater. You can line dry your clothes and select to cold wash your garments on shorter wash cycles to minimise any impact.
