By recycling fabrics, we are not only stopping extra waste heading to landfill but also reducing the need for virgin fabrics to be created. Recycled fabrics can be anything from recycled polyester to recycled cotton and where recycled cotton is used, it's often offcuts from factory floors that would otherwise end up in landfill.

Top TipsChest is usually the best size predictor for tops and jackets. However, if your hip measurement is larger, consider buying the size indicated for your hips. Likewise, for legwear, hips are usually the best size predictor, but if your waist measurement is larger, consider buying the size indicated by your waist.
How to Measure
Chest: measure around your chest, just under the armpit.
Arm Length: with the elbow bent, measure from the centre (back) of the neck to the elbow and down to the wrist.
Waist: measure around the waist at the smallest circumference.
Hips: stand, feet together, and measure around the largest circumference at hips.

Slim Fit: closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.
Regular Fit: neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers.
Relaxed Fit: drapes loosely on the body.
