“Sustainability is no longer just an environmental or ethical concern – it is now a financial, business and investment imperative.”
Do you produce, supply or buy clothing or textiles? We can help you to make tangible and measurable progress, reduce risk, build reputation and attract talent.
There are so many sustainability hotspots in the clothing and textile industry, carbon emissions, modern slavery, animal welfare, and waste – and they often occur in different parts of the value chain.

Research & Development
“The climate crisis is the number one issue of our time and clothing and textiles have a huge part to play in it.” Bernadette Casey, Founder
Every year over a hundred billion garments are produced, creating about 10% of the world’s carbon emissions, with only a fraction ever recycled. Most end up in landfill releasing Greenhouse gases they decompose. Billions of dollars are spent annually landfilling valuable commodities.
Helping you to take meaningful steps to address climate change, deforestation and water security by catalysing the reuse of textile resources. Advancing the transition to a circular economy by looping textile resources back into production. Reducing the draw on natural resources and environmental impacts.
The Formary’s ability to transform textile waste into innovative new product for our clients is a truly unique and savvy sustainable approach.
