Sustainability Sportswear Developments in Asia – Paving The Way For A Greener Future
At Kukri Sports, we recognise the significance of minimizing our ecological footprint, while providing high-quality, bespoke sportswear. We have implemented various recent initiatives to achieve this goal, such as offering a comprehensive selection of sustainable products. Additionally, we remain committed to the well-being of both our global manufacturing partners and the individuals who wear our garments.
We have recently achieved notable milestones in Asia. Firstly, we have successfully developed our most sustainable line of merchandise for this year’s Hong Kong Sevens tournament. As part of this effort, we created three new replica shirts using recycled polyester, ensuring a reduced environmental impact.
Kukri have also recently signed a multi-year partnership with the Korean International School, based in Hong Kong. As part of the agreement, we will be providing a full range of bespoke school sportswear for both on and off field, all made from our sustainable fabrics.
“At Kukri Sports, we firmly acknowledge the inherent connection between our future success and our unwavering commitment to sustainability. Through our steadfast advocacy of eco-friendly practices, we not only make a positive impact on the health of our planet but also endeavor to ignite inspiration among our customers, encouraging them to actively participate in shaping a brighter tomorrow. Sustainability is not a fleeting trend but a fundamental cornerstone upon which we strive to strengthen our business’s endurance and forge a lasting legacy that resonates with our planet’s well-being.” Clare Millington, Kukri General Manager, Asia
