Old Uniforms, New Caps: Our Recycling Project In Thailand
FedEx has a long history of putting sustainability at the center of our business. In Thailand, we partnered with a local upcycling business to transform retired uniforms into smart new caps for couriers.
Finding ways to recycle old uniforms
Our frontline team members are given a new set of uniform every year. But there's just one problem. The old uniforms pile up. We wondered: how we can better manage old uniforms in a more sustainable way?
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:
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. 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.
