How We Are Recycling Old Uniforms Into New Caps in Thailand
FedEx has a long history of putting sustainability at the center of our business. Learn how we are collaborating with a local upcycling business in Thailands to transform retired uniforms into smart new caps for our couriers.
Finding ways to recycle old uniforms
Our frontline team members are given a new uniform every year. But there's just one problem. The old uniforms pile up. We wondered: what are the alternate ways in which we can manage old uniforms more sustainably?
So far, more than 200 old uniforms have been transformed into fiber, yarn and fabric, and reproduced into over 700 FedEx caps. Check out the full story in the video below:
What else are we doing to work towards our net-zero goal?
From an operations standpoint, we’re gradually transitioning to a 100% electric pickup and delivery fleet, and continuing to optimize efficiencies of our facilities and increase the use of sustainable fuels. We are also taking responsibility to help clean up our beaches and oceans across the region. As for our services and solutions, we’re encouraging adoption of digital shipping tools so that customers can go paperless where possible, as well as recycled packaging and reusable packaging to reduce our environment impact.
