We are acting on our responsibility as a sportswear brand and aim to be producing all polyester-based sportswear with recycled fabric by 2025.
It’s time to share our vision & mantra of sustainability.
Plastic pollution is a worldwide problem.
From the bottles we drink to the clothes we wear, the use of virgin polyester and plastic has been increasing consistently for the past 65 years. The rates of recycling do not match this substantial growth.
We are acting on our responsibility as a sportswear brand and aim to be producing all polyester-based sportswear with recycled fabric by 2025. Furthermore, with brand-new developments such as paper-based packaging, we are cutting down on hundreds of tonnes of plastic one-use waste.
SCIMITAR x RAINFOREST CONCERN.
Moving with the tide.
Scimitar aim to be producing all polyester-based sportswear with recycled fabric by 2025, developing new products, patterns and options to ensure we’re able to hit our target.
The UK’s finest.
We’re proud to offer the UK’s largest selection of custom recycled sportswear, and will be working hard over the next few years to increase this in line with our 2025 target.
Scimitar are planning on removing all plastic packaging from products, including kimbles and accessories. All supplied marketing literature will be printed on recycled paper.
No waste, no problem.
Working in conjunction with Tag Rugby Trust, we will repurpose thousands of used sportswear items to prevent wastage and provide those in need with clothing. Find out more here.

STATS THAT MATTER
Why a need for change?
Up to 12 million tonnes of plastics are being swept into the oceans annually.
There are 500,000,000,000 plastic bags used globally each year. That’s 500 billion.
1,000,000 plastic bottles are purchased and consumed, globally, every minute.
50% of consumer plastics are single use. The biggest culprit is packaging.
10% of all human-generated waste is plastic.
