Sustainability

Our mission is to change the global retail industry for good, by offering environmentally friendly garment hangers and packaging solutions.

 

Re-Use and Recycling 

Manufacture and waste minimisation

Unlike other companies, instead of just making hangers, we re-use them, reducing the pollution generated from manufacturing by 70%. The hangers we provide are specially designed to go through the cycle many times and still appear in top condition in-store.

 

Recycling

Although Braiform strive to maximise the number of hangers re-used within our client programmes, there are always those that have come to the end of their usable life, either broken, dirty or obsolete. These hangers are not put back into the waste stream to end up in landfill - Braiform recycle these and re-use the raw materials back in virgin production of new garment hangers.

 

Wooden Hangers

When we are not reusing and recycling our hangers we are making them from responsibly sourced wood. Our current wooden hanger range from Braiform Bespoke which is wholly made in Europe is made entirely from Beech Wood for the highest quality and strength possible.

The wood that we use is only sourced from European Sustainably Managed Forests and our operation is fully FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified. 

FSC Certified Wood

Braiform are always focused on sustainability and respect for the environment, along with the working conditions of our employees globally.

Our commitment to carbon emission reduction will be accredited by a worldwide recognised organisation whose mission is to accelerate the move to a sustainable and low carbon economy.

Braiform operate in a true circular economy which is a regenerative system in which resource input and waste, emission, and energy leakage are minimised by slowing, closing, and narrowing energy and material loops. This can be achieved through long-lasting design, maintenance, repair, reuse, remanufacturing, refurbishing and closed loop programmes.

Braiform remain the market leader in providing solutions in a true circular economy within our industry.

Waste Management and Sustainable supply chains

Waste Management Programs are extremely important at Braiform and we aim to recycle 99.5% of all returns from store including any by-products of the Re-Use program.

In addition to sustainable product design we are extremely dedicated to ensuring our supply chain is both environmentally sustainable and ethically responsible. Braiform now work alongside SEDEX (the supplier of ethical data exchange), a none for profit membership organisation dedicated to driving improvements in responsible and ethical business practices in global supply chains.
