Dirk van den Broek gives employees a circular new look

From now on, all employees of Dirk van den Broek will put their sleeves in a new jacket. The new corporate clothing, produced in collaboration with Schijvens Corporate Fashion, is fully circular. The fabrics of the new outfits are developed by collecting old Dirk clothing and combining it with recycled PET bottles, ocean plastic and organic cotton. As of Sunday 19 February, everyone will be working in the new outfit.

McDonald’s employees are undergoing metamorphosis

The employees of McDonald’s Restaurants are literally being given a new look. In collaboration with family business Schijvens Corporate Fashion, new company clothing has been developed for employees in the Restaurants, a hip clothing line with a lot of variation that is completely in line with this time. Employees from the Restaurants have helped with the choice of company clothing, which is produced in a sustainable manner.

We produce fully circular by the end of 2022

Shirley Schijvens is the 5th generation of the family owned business Schijvens Corporate Fashion in Hilvarenbeek. Her ambition is to have a fully circular production by the end of 2022. She has therefore been involved in the sustainable development of Schijvens for a number of years. Employees, chain partners and customers; they do it all together. This is even a bit “addictive” for her. She clearly explains in podcast episode 3 of ‘Elise in MVO-land’ what this way of working yields and costs her.
